Day 178, Evening

Today’s evening meditation is available below in audio and script formats. The audio version is also available for free download on the player.


Those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought you into God’s family. So we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit itself affirms with our own that we are God’s children.

—Romans 8 (NT)


As your day draws to a close, spend a few moments in silence and stillness.


Read the passage again. As you do, become aware of God’s loving presence within you.


Thank you, almighty God, that in Christ Jesus, we are free from fear. But more than that, freed to love you, to willingly yield our lives to you, to know you, and to cry from our hearts, “Father.” Amen. (WC)
