May 8th – Ephesians 4:22-24

Ephesians 4:22-24

After we receive Jesus as our Savior, He doesn’t leave us floundering out on our own in the world. Or asking, “What’s next?” Instead He gives us His Spirit to guide us, and His Word as a blueprint for life. And here in Ephesians, Paul tells us how we can live a life of victory and one the glorifies the Lord. He begins by telling us that as believers we are united with Jesus, who now sits at the right hand of God. And as such, it’s time to get rid of the old and put on the new. Time to shed our old clothes of disobedience, sin, and earthly living. Time to dress as the royalty we are and put on our new clothes of righteousness. For we are citizens of heaven and should dress like it. No longer are we to wear the filthy rags of immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, but rather the designer clothes of glory that reflect “those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved.” (Col. 3:12)
