Daily Devotion

daily-devotional13 April 

8 But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. (Colossians 3:8-10, ESV)

A believer in Christ is forgiven, and yet forgiveness doesn’t give us license to sin. Even though (or better because) we are forgiven, we should work even harder to please the Lord. Heed the words and be conformed to the image of Christ. Don’t be a wimpy Christian. Be a new man.

Prayer: Lord, create in me a new heart and renewed spirit that You would be glorified.
