God Grant Me A Long Life To Always Serve You

Colossians 3 :8 -10

 But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.  Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices.

Praise the Lord !!!

Paul starts the above passage with writing"But now you must get rid of angered,rage, malice,slander and filthy language from your lips.

Do not lie to each other since you have taken off your old self with it's practices and have put on the New self which is being renewed in knowledge of in the image of it's creator."

Another translation says "you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all it's wicked deeds".Oh what a list!!

How many times have we tried to do this?The only way we can successfully get rid of these negative characteristics is to change ourselves from the INSIDE.

We need to get rid of our sinful nature.But that is like trying to get rid of darkness.It doesn't work.You cannot get rid of darkness.Inorder for you to succeed in getting rid of darkness is YOU NEED TO TURN ON THE LIGHT.

This means that God has put in us the capacity to know Him.His Holy spirit inside us guides us and as we attune ourselves with Him, as we spend time in His presence,as we meditate on His word,the renewing of our mind takes place.


Child of God may we become renewed,a new mind that comes from knowing God.Today spend time with God.Amen and Amen.Have a blessed day in the presence of God.
