RELAX + REFOCUS
Close your eyes and allow your mind to be still. Turn your palms downward as you let go of all distractions and cares. Now turn your palms upward as a physical posture of opening yourself up to receive the living word from your Abba Father.
And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. Galatians 4:6-7
REFLECT + RESPOND
What are some of the images of the Spirit of God that come to mind? What is he like? What does he do? How has your understanding and experience of the Holy Spirit changed over the years and through what means? Ask the Spirit now to teach you and grow you through our study of the scriptures this week.
