Do you ever get distracted or find yourself getting absorbed by something other than what you’re supposed to be doing?! I know I do. Sometimes we need a reminder to get back on track and to refocus.
Today, I find this passage is just that: a reminder or wake-up call to spiritual living. The Galatians had been following after Jesus and living by faith. But somewhere along the way, they got off course. They slipped into their old way of doing spiritual life by relying on their own efforts, rather than relying on Jesus and believing that what He had done was enough.
Be encouraged! Just like God reminded that Galatians, may we also be reminded to stay on track and run our race.
Holy Spirit, help us to fully rely on Jesus and to be alert to what makes us take our eyes off Him and what He has already done for us.
