Galatians 4:4-7 New International Version

“4 But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.”

I don’t think there is any way possible for me to comply with all 613 laws recorded in The Old Testament. Be honest, sometimes many of us have a little trouble with the Big Ten (think: keeping the Sabbath holy or those little fibs). When I think about the plan God had for our redemption, my mind reels. He could have just hit the reset button, moved on, and done away with the whole free will thing. Instead, he sent us Jesus. Now you and I are no longer slaves to our human nature. The Spirit of Jesus, of God, is now within us. We just have to listen.

When the clock strikes twelve Thursday night, nothing will have changed but the numbers on the dial. There will still be plagues devastating our world; diseases of mind, body and soul. Still, it is a symbolic moment for rededication. We just have to listen. God is with us, every moment. Listen…something to pray about.
