22 “…that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,
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: Sanctification by the truth of the Gospel is to put off your former conduct, termed as the ‘old man’ which grows corrupt according to deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of new man and that you put on the new man according to His true righteousness and Holiness. Ephesians 4:22-24. Walk always in fellowship with each other so that we will be continually cleansed from sinful nature.
We were each given a grace to walk and love to the fullness of Christ. By grace you are saved not by works. We are justified by our faith in Romans 5:1 and by the Blood of Jesus in Romans 5:9. with a new heart which only God can give, and as we submit our thoughts to God, we will be led to make the right decision to walk by faith not by sight. Walking by faith and not by sight enables you to reject the bad information that literally becomes hot air and build good memories into our brain that produces success.
We are not than creatures of dust. We are called to a greater destiny beyond words. When we keep on going without quitting, God will grant you victory like Nehemiah did. Like David, he programmed his mind for success and despite turbulent times, he hang onto the plans of his calling and was able to accomplish His mission well in advance that lift him up from cup bearer to governor in Jerusalem. Romans 8:28. Men’s schemes against you are evil but God turned the outcome to one of eminence and dignity. God be praised.
Prayer: Lord prepare me for a greater destiny You have for me. Guide me and lead me to paths of righteousness for Your name sake. Help me to live as God’s redeemed children purchased with the blood of Jesus. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
