God's Abiding Presence...Faith
 
 
Focus Scriptures: 
Galatians 3:23-29    Luke 8:26-39
 

St. Paul is contrasting the role of God’s law before and after faith in the life of a follower of Jesus. With the gift of faith that comes through the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit the world of a person is transformed.  Before faith Paul was “imprisoned” by the law of God. After faith he did not feel subject to the “disciplinarian” of the law. He goes on to reflect that faith has the power to make all people children of God so that the labels of our world no longer apply. A person now has the freedom to see themselves not by their label but by their identity with their creator.

Galatians 3: 25-27  25 “But now that faith has come, we are no longer subject to a disciplinarian, 26 for in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. 27 As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.”   Have you ever gone on a trip?  You pack your suitcase for every chance occasion, even a swimsuit just in case the pool is open and you have “the time” (which never happens unless you have kids, then they will make time for you, but that’s not the same.)  You get to the hotel, begin to unpack, and then it happens, you forgot socks!  Or maybe a hat, gloves, you get the picture.  And this is why the hotel has a convenience store in the lobby and you pay twice the amount for a set of black Bombas.  Yet when you go on a trip in Christ to do his work, he provides all the clothing needed for the job to get done.  Faith gives us the tool to do the job, but it's baptism that helps you make the trip in the first place.  Prayer:  God, continue to remind us that it is your baptism that gives us strength to go out and do your work.  Amen
