Today's Verse : Ephesians 4:22-23


April 22, 2012

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put
off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful
desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds...
-- Ephesians 4:22-23

We are made new when we become Christians. Most of us, however,
have moments when the old way of life erupts and wants to make its
presence known. This means that being new is a lifetime decision we
must make each day. As we make that commitment and seek to follow
the Lordship of our Savior, the Holy Spirit's power (that Paul
talks about all through Ephesians) is promised to us and the
Spirit's goal is to mature us to be like Christ. (Eph. 4:12-16; 2
Cor. 3:18)

Almighty God and dear Heavenly Father, please bless me today as
I seek to live as a new person -- cleansed, made holy, and
empowered by your Spirit. Give me a new and clean mind as I
intentionally put aside my old habits and desires. In Jesus' name I
pray. Amen.
