There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. - Romans 8:1

Praise God that we are made righteous by faith in the perfect atoning work of Christ. When we are His, the Holy Spirit is in us and by the Spirit, we are humbled and convicted of sin and are led to repentance by a loving and caring Father. If we don't feel convicted by overt sin then we have either seared our consciences and closed off the voice of the Spirit or we are simply not His. Covert sin is revealed in God's timing as He patiently works out our sanctification. Today, let us pray that the Spirit touches the hearts of our Church family members by the Truth of His Word and opens our eyes to the beauty and righteousness of Christ.
