And to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” - Ephesians 4:24 (ESV)
When you invited Christ into your heart, God made you
into a new person. He not only forgave your sins, and filled you with His Holy
Spirit, but He also gave you a new nature (self).
So many Christians know
their sin is forgiven, but they don’t see themselves as new creations in
Christ. Righteousness and holiness are natural to our new self, because we are
made in His image.
We are encouraged to put on the new self, God has
given us. In order to put on the new, we have to set aside the old self. As long
as we hold onto who we were, we will never become who God has called us to be.
We are to put on the new self and leave the old self behind. As we put on the
new self, we become more and more like Christ.
As you pray for your
husband today, pray that he stops focusing on who he was, and begins to see
himself as who he is in Christ. Pray that he sets aside the old self and puts on
the new self. Ask God to help him begin living in the new nature God has given
pray that you will help eddie see that he is a new creation in You. Help him to
remember that his old life has passed away and You have made all things new. I
pray that he is reminded that he has to put on his new self and set aside the
old self to walk in the victory and power You have promised him.In Jesus Name,
eddie, today I
am praying that you put on the new self God has given you. I was reminded today
that you are not the old eddie, but a new eddie in Christ. You have a nature
that is in the likeness of God, righteous and holy. I am praying that today you
live in the new nature God has given you. love, denise
