DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Put On Christ
God’s ultimate plan is for each Christian to be a carbon copy of the Lord Jesus Christ in behaviour. Before we gave our lives to Christ, we were ruled by the desires of the flesh; which means our lifestyles were diametrically opposed to that of Christ. Our redemption is meant to take us out of such lifestyles; we are now expected to allow Christ to reign in us and model us to become like Him. He came to redeem us from our sins; He does not want us to continue to wallow in sin. The time to allow Christ to begin the work of remodelling is today. The time for rapture is much nearer than we imagine. We can, therefore, not afford to continue in ungodly lifestyles or to continue indulging the flesh in its desires and lusts. To put on Christ is to manifest His presence in us unto the world around us – in our deeds, our thoughts and our words.
Point of Emphasis: Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh.
Prayer Point: Father, give me victory over the desires of the flesh that want to control my life.
