DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Put Off The Old Man
Before a sinner comes to the knowledge of God and surrenders to God, he or she might have engaged in activities and deeds that are contrary to God’s will. Such negative attitude may include fornication, uncleanness, evil desire, covetousness, anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy or corrupt language, lie, etc. For a believer who wants to be dead to sins and alive unto God, conscious and frantic efforts must be made to “put off” these old vices in them. This they can do through prayer and application of the word of God to their lives and attitudes. They must evaluate their actions, reactions, thoughts, desires, etc, with the undiluted word of God.
Point of Emphasis: But now you yourself are to put off traces of old sins.
Prayer Point: Lord, I put off today anger (mention others) from my life.
