You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:22-24(NIV)
I was thinking about something this past Sunday at our church. What if you swallowed God? Would you want Him to be smooth to where He would be enjoyed like a delicious dessert? Or would you want Him to upset your stomach to where you feel miserable and can’t even sleep due to the constant feeling of being sick? The dessert is enjoyed for a moment but then within minutes it is gone. However, the upset stomach continues to remind you of it being there and you feel like you want to get it out.
“Surrender: you have been given a NEW nature, Live it!”
What do you think? Are you ready for the new life? Is there a thorn in your life that reminds you to keep the focus? Do you want to be reminded daily of God?
