Proverbs 19-21; Romans 13
“…clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of your sinful nature.”
“He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.”
What we meditate on each day will shape our choices in life and ultimately our destiny. When we make Jesus the central focus of our lives we find he gives us abundant life, all we need and relational health. Jesus is the key to living with happiness, contentment and peace. However, we have a choice. The temptations of our sinful nature also call out to us for attention and response. The deciding factor each day is our will.
In which direction will we engage our will?
Followers of Jesus choose every day to be clothed with Christ Jesus and his love, humility, purity and grace. Followers of Jesus choose Christ’s righteousness and love – they surrender their will to Jesus and find life.
“Lord Jesus, I choose you this day. Clothe me with your life and nature. May I be like you.”
