Put On The New Man
Having put off the old man (the devil) and his ungodly acts, believers must strive to put on the New Man (Jesus Christ) and His godly character. Those characteristics include tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering, bearing with and forgiving one another irrespective of the gravity of the offence, love of God, the brethren and fellow humans, peace with all men and thankfulness. Only those who are alive unto God can put on these godly virtues. Check your life, do you have all of these virtues complete? If some are lacking in your life, you need to pray them in and work on yourself so that your being alive unto God will be complete.
Point of Emphasis: As elect of God, holy and beloved, put on godly virtues.
Prayer Point: Lord, supply unto me all the godly virtues that are lacking in my life.
