Ephesians 4:23-24 “…be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new self, created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of truth.”
Being in Christ, a believer, a follower of the Lord, means a complete change, a metamorphosis. When we allow Jesus to take over our lives, we die to our sinful nature. We die to our flesh. We then focus on truth in our lives “and” the truth of our own behavior. We let the light of Christ reveal our new selves in Jesus.
God’s way is not the world’s way. It is filled with grace and blessings. Our new self no longer lives in fear and despair, but in love, faith, and hope.
Lord, melt me, mold me, renew me, and create me as Your disciple. I praise You for molding me in Your image.
Do you allow God to melt and mold your heart for the better? Or, do you become stiff and rigid when He approaches your heart?
