Today’s Scripture(s) – Ephesians 4:22-23; 1Peter 1:13-15
“That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; ….. Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;”
When we hear the word ‘conversation’ we think of: how we speak. Yes that is what conversing is, but it also depicts: how we live. Our conversation will tell what and how we are living quicker than what the eye can see. We have become masters at hiding our true selves from each other, but again I say to you by the leading of the Holy Spirit, we cannot and will not ever be able to hide ourselves from God the Father, the Lord Jesus Christ. Nothing is hidden from Him. When we do our dirty deeds He sees it and you must know that He knows that we will do them even before we do. Nothing about us surprises the Father. The old man wants to gratify the flesh the old man wants to do what the flesh wants to do. The old man is in league with the enemy dear ones. Far too many of us claim the old man is dead, but as soon as something happens that we do not like or as soon as we desire to do something that we know is not pleasing to the Father, the old man is resurrected from the dead. We are living in a time that the old man must be buried and never dug up again. When we go to bring the old man back to life we are akin to Lot’s wife: Genesis 19:26 “But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.” Lot and his family were told: (see Genesis 19:17) “….Escape for thy life; look not behind thee….lest thou be consumed.” We must learn a real lesson from the story of Lot. We cannot live any kind of way. We cannot live lives that are not right before God the Father. We must make sure that our conversation, our living is holy before the Lord. What many do not realize is that we cannot do it on our own and the Father knew this and that is why He has given to us His Holy Spirit. If we will yield to the power of the Holy Ghost, He will lead and guide us. He will show us the way to go. He will help us to live holy. He will show us how to tap into His power, but guess what? We have to believe and we are going to have to renew our minds in His Word every, single, day. We as “Christians” can never take the stance that we have ‘arrived’ because something supernatural happened in our lives in a moment. We must seek to stay right before the Father always while in this tabernacle called our body of flesh. We must live lives that are repentant before the Father and remain meek and humble before Him. We must live lives that reverence the Lord. I sent a message this week to my niece that messaged me to say happy birthday, I said I’m 52 years old, can you believe it, God is so good, and she sent me back a message that said, Yes He is, He didn’t have to do it but He did! When I think of that I think, you know we use to say that when I was a little girl and it’s true, nothing that the Father has done for us ‘He had to do’, but all that He does for us He does out of the GREAT love He has for us and what does He ask us to do? Love Him with all our heart, with all our mind, with all our soul with all our strength and to love Him is to keep His commandments and He will do all that He said He would do for US. He asks that we live HOLY and He doesn’t leave us to do it alone, He himself will help us. Be determined this New Year to live a life that is holy and right before the Father, reverence Him, give Him the honor that is due unto Him. Bury the old ways and leave them buried and move forward in the Holy Spirit. Great things are coming!

If You Have Not Made Jesus Lord Of Your Life Pray This Prayer:
Today Lord, right this very minute I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I need a Savior. Your word says that there is no other name under heaven by which a man or woman can be saved and that name is Jesus. Today I repent of every sin that I have ever committed, I repent of every sin that I have done and I ask you Jesus to come into my life and be my Lord and Savior. I believe that you Lord Jesus shed your precious blood and died for my sins, I am willing to turn from sin and live a life that is holy and pleasing in your sight. I now invite you Christ Jesus to come into my heart and live in me and be my personal Savior. I ask that you would fill me with your precious Holy Spirit, lead and guide me in this life Lord Jesus. Thank you for saving my soul. Amen.
