With the freedom of summer over, it’s time to think about discipline. But today’s chapter begins with these words: “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free…” [v1] The spiritual freedom that my Maker bought for me at the highest price, comes with His Holy Spirit who is now alive and at work in me.

   1.   Praise: “Our Father in Heaven, how great is Your name! Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven…”

   2.   Ask: “…Give us today our daily bread…”

May You be gracious to me and bless me, Father God. Make Your face shine on me. [Psalm 67:1]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us…”

Now forgive my sin once more. I pray to You, Lord God, to take the deadly plague of sin away from me. [Exodus 10:17]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one…”

Thank-you, Jesus, for promising that whoever acknowledges You before others, You’ll also acknowledge us before Your Father in heaven. [Matthew 10:32]

“ For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory for ever and ever. Amen”
