Do you try to fit Jesus into your schedule? Or do you work your schedule to fit Jesus?
What does that mean? Do you pray and seek the will of God with everything you do? What’s your aim in life?
Do you do what you want to do – or what God leads you to do?
When thoughts come to mind, do you just go with them no matter what they are?
Don’t let your flesh live any way it wants to live. You crucify it. When it wants to do or say things it shouldn’t do or say, you say, “Body, shut up. You are not going there. You are not doing that. I don’t even want to hear that.”
Here is the mindset we should have:
11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Any time we face temptation, we should say, “I’m dead to that! That was part of my old life! I am a new creation in Christ!”
2 Corinthians 5:17
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
To live a holy life, to separate ourselves from sin, we must see ourselves as God does – as born again children of the Most High, clothed with the righteousness of Christ.
