Can you say it any better than the translation found in THE MESSAGE does – Romans 8: 12 – 15. “So, don’t you see that we don’t owe this old do-it-yourself life one red cent? There’s nothing in it for us, nothing at all. The best thing to do is give it a decent burial and get on with your new life. God’s Spirit beckons. There are things to do and places to go! This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?”
Lord, may I see the events of today with my mind set on what God’s Spirit, who lives in me, desires.
