Today's Verse – Galatians 4:19

My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you…

Galatians 4:19

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Paul had a clear goal for new followers of Jesus; he wanted Jesus to be formed in them. He wanted them to come to full maturity in Christ (see Colossians 1:28-29). He knew the Holy Spirit would help them in this process if they would focus their hearts on Jesus and seek to reflect Jesus’ character in their lives (2 Corinthians 3:18). So, as we go through our daily activities, let’s honor his goal — let’s invite Jesus to come to life in us.

My Prayer…

Holy and Righteous God, may the presence of Jesus increase in my attitude, behavior, and speech and may what is worldly and warped decrease. May this be true today, but even more, dear Father, may it be more clearly seen each day. In the name of my Savior and goal, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
