Daily Freedom

“With the Lord’s authority I say this: Live no longer as the Gentiles do, for they are hopelessly confused. 18 Their minds are full of darkness; they wander far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him. 19 They have no sense of shame. They live for lustful pleasure and eagerly practice every kind of impurity.20 But that isn’t what you learned about Christ. 21 Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, 22 throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. 23 Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. 24 Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy” Ephesians 4:17-24 NLT.

Do you ever find yourself confused?

If you are a Christian, you do not need to walk around hopelessly confused. Your mind does not need to be dark or your heart hard.  You have been set apart from those who live in the world and have no sense of shame.  They lust for pleasure.

Isn’t it great, that you can walk in daily Freedom – because of what Jesus did for you on the cross!  You have learned that truth comes from Jesus. So throw off any of your old habits and ways of living life before you were a Christian. Everything in your past was corrupted by lust and deception. Now, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and your attitudes.  Put on your new nature. You have been created to be like God, truly righteous and holy because of Him!
