The Spirit of God first imparts love; he next inspires hope and then gives liberty; and that is about the last thing we have in many of our churches. -Moody

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Romans 8:14

Let’s face it folks, we are judged everyday by someone. It may be someone in another car, the waiter at a restaurant, or the kid starring at you in the checkout line at Walmart. People judge us by what we wear, where we go, who we support politically, even the place we attended college at has astigmatism that comes with it.

As people look, inspect, and even judge our lives, do we share the Spirit that is living in us in a way that they know we are a Christian? Does the Spirit of God influence our lives so that others would see His light living and abiding in us? Do you share the love of God that inspires hope and gives liberty to the captives?

What’s influencing your life this morning? It will show up in your actions later today!
