Thought of the Day !!

But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code. 
                                      Romans 7:6 (ESV)

The law held people captive because it could only show where we were wrong.  It was never meant to be a tool of salvation.  

Paul states that we serve in a new way now.  We serve by way of the Spirit of God.  This means that if we've accepted this way through repentance of sins and faith in Jesus, then the Holy Spirit of God resides in us.  He is whom we serve now.  

He will show us the way, right from wrong, good from evil, ways to love neighbor etc.  And as we follow His leading we will find peace and joy that never could be found by simply following a set of rules.  So let us serve the Holy Spirit.  Allow Him to convict you, comfort you, bring you joy.

In the love of Christ,
