Romans 13:14…..three steps to successfully walking with Christ!

During my recent quiet time with Him, God blessed me with the following, encouraging thoughts. Please don’t miss this:

Romans 13:14 is an incredible apologetic which by itself, provides a concise strategy on how to live the Christian life successfully. It states: Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

First, clothe yourself with Christ. This is done by putting on the full armor of God so that you will be able to take your stand against the devil’s schemes. This armor is specified in Ephesians 6:10-17.

Second, recognize that you’re surrounding yourself with not simply a thought or idea but instead with the Lord and creator of all things who, being made in the likeness of man died for us and rose again to immortality.

Third, Philippians 4:8 tells us to think about whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.” Do this and you will learn how to gratify the desires of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus illustrated it best in Luke 12:34 when He said: “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”. We are clothed with either the wisdom of this world or with the wisdom of God hidden in Christ, as they can never co-exist together with agreement.

Are you properly clothed!
