23 “…and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
Today’s Inspiration: To whom can we go except to the Lord our God who forgives our sins and washes them till they are white as snow? Isaiah 1:18. We must not permit spiritual neglect to enter our soul. Through neglect His truth slips away over time and the things of Satan’s world begin to make its entry. God’s law is no longer important and Christ’s sacrifice vanished into oblivion. This endangered our life. God is only glorified when we engaged with Him and are most satisfied in Him. God’s purpose in saving His children is to show them His eternal kindness.
What is the true meaning to life? It is to put on a new self which is the likeness of God created in righteousness and Holiness of the truth. Ephesians 4:24.
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth but only such words that are good for edification according to the need of the moment that it may give grace to the hearers. Ephesians 4:29. Apart from God and the hope of future glory we cannot achieve the goal. What is best is to have little with quietness and contentment with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and turmoil with it.
In short, we are to live simply no matter where we are. Proverbs 15:16. God be praised. Build up your spiritual life and relationship with God.
Prayer: Lord help me to be content in all circumstances and to avoid idleness the thief of time. In Jesus’ name, amen.
