Read Ephesians 4:17-32

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 mind. Get rid of all bitterness, rage anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as god through Christ has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:21-23,31-32

Observation
If we’ve been living in sin it’s time to reprogram our minds with good, healthy, Godly living. God saved us from ourselves and we are new with a new life. We need to stop harming ourselves. When we were babies we learned new stuff. It’s time to put on our big kid shoes and learn how to walk!! With new lives in Christ, we need to let the Holy Spirit teach us and help renew our minds and behaviors.

Application
We need to let the Holy Spirit work in us. And we need to be around people that are living like Jesus and be accountable to them. When we start having bad thoughts we need to let the Holy Spirit guide us, feed us and replenish us and help us live with a Godly attitude. Our thinking will become clearer and we will produce good fruit. When we don’t do that, we just produce garbage.

Prayer
Father, I pray You send me a strong accountability team; people who can help me turn away from my sinful nature. Holy Spirit, help me to walk out what God has called me to be. Father, I surrender my life to You. Amen
