How do we get to here: “They shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)? By the first sentence in the verse: “But those who wait on the Lord”.
Through the tender mercy of our God, with which the Dayspring from on high has visited us; to give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. Luke 1:78-79
Christian freedom is not for selfish fulfillment, but for serving others (Romans 14:1-15). Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Galatians 5:13.
All believers have the presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit
(Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 6:19,20).
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
Love truth and be elevated to wisdom.
Paul urges us to continue in God’s grace because it’s the way we live in full dependence upon Him (Ephesians 3, 4; Acts 13:43). Every time the Lord meets our needs, guides our steps, forgives our sins, or comforts and strengthens us in our hardships, He’s lavishing us with divine favor. And it doesn’t end in this life. In the eternal ages to come, He will show us “the boundless riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus” (Eph. 2:7). Commentary from the In Touch devotional by Charles Stanley, October 2, 2021.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:8-10
