THE 2nd of NOVEMBER

THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT WE CAN LIVE RIGHT FOR GOD

I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness. – Romans 6:19

Spiritual things cannot be comprehended with the human mind. Christians of Paul’s time and still today, are all in a growing process. During our Christian lives, we continue to mature spiritually.

Before we came to Christ, we obeyed sin and presented our bodies as slaves to impurity and moral lawlessness. No matter how many times we tried to stop the cycle of sin in our own strength, it was not possible until we became born-again. Even if in our own strength we became more moral and stopped committing certain sins, we could not stop all the cravings and lusts of our carnal nature for long. We did not even know that some of our habits were sinful, until we were renewed by the Holy Spirit as we studied the Bible and He opened our spiritual eyes.

Our minds began to be renewed and learned what was sin and what we had to renounce. The more we think in godly terms, as we follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, instead of the lusts of our carnal nature, the more we lose interest in sin. By doing so, we start to obey God’s righteousness instead of sin. This way of life leads us to holiness, which means to be set apart for God’s purpose. Whenever we desire to fulfill God’s plan for our lives, we lose interest in anything else, and we truly live for Jesus. The mature Christian does not choose to live in sin and when they happen to sin, they sincerely repent and ask God for forgiveness.

SUGGESTED PRAYER: Thank You Father God for saving me and for Your amazing love and grace. Please forgive all the sins from my past and help me to use the abilities and talents You have given me for Your glory. Please help renounce all sin, live righteously and mature spiritually so that I will never go back under the ownership of sin. In the Name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
