Putting on a New Nature

Ephesians 4 image
‘Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.’ Ephesians 4:21-24

Once you learn the truth of Jesus Christ and accept Him as your personal savior, there’s no turning back. You will throw off the old sinful self and let the Holy Spirit renew you, your thoughts, and your attitude.

God’s word also tells us:
And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:1‭-‬2

When you let God transform you, you become holy and righteous. Which is acceptable, pleasing, and perfect to Him.

Don’t get me wrong, life will never be a bed of roses. Each trial we face, God uses it in a way to make us grow in our faith. Keeping us on our toes. That is if we stay in His word and live our lives according to His word.

Father YAH, I lift up the readers of this post to You. I pray that they will seek You, will accept You, will throw off the old sinful self, and be renewed by You. Thank You for giving us Jesus to be our Savior. In Jesus’ name, amen.
