“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 ‭NLT‬‬

As Christians we are called to be holy, to become more like Jesus. This is what changes us, but then His life shining through us changes the world around us! Eugene Peterson, who wrote The Message paraphrase of the Bible says this, ‘Holy means that God is alive on God’s terms, alive in a way that exceeds our experience and imagination. Holy refers to life burning with an intense purity that transforms everything it touches into itself.’ Wow! Lord, I want to be made holy, set apart for Your divine purpose. Renew my thoughts and attitudes and help me to fully put on my new nature, that I might become more like You. Amen 🔥🙏🏼
