Prayer for the Day
God, too often we choose stay in our old, comfy clothes rather than get a new set of clothes from you. We worry about what the new clothes might demand of us. Can we handle being a bearer of Christ’s light? Give us the courage, each day anew, to live as you would have us live.
What happens when we don’t recognize someone else’s choice for God and that they are figuring out what it means to be “clothed in love?” What happens when we can’t quite believe Christ’s compassion, humility, patience, forbearance, and forgiveness really covers our sin? How can we help ourselves and others recognize and rejoice over the Holy Spirit transformations taking place every day?
