[10th century Byzantine illustration of Luke the Evangelist.]
The golden rule. How often I break it. And I will always disobey this charge from our Lord, unless He grants me His grace and power to carry out the command.
And I can do this through faith in His promises to bless and fill us with His Holy Spirit.
Be encouraged that you can not do the things you want to do, because our flesh wars against the Spirit. But, when the Spirit fills us, and we are walking by trusting Christ to help us, then we can do those things that please the Lord, and our Father in heaven.
