As a follower of the Lord, I order you to stop living like stupid, godless people. Their minds are in the dark, and they are stubborn and ignorant and have missed out on the life that comes from God. They no longer have any feelings about what is right, and they are so greedy that they do all kinds of indecent things. But that isn’t what you were taught about Jesus Christ. He is the truth, and you heard about him and learned about him. You were told that your foolish desires will destroy you and that you must give up your old way of life with all its bad habits. Let the Spirit change your way of thinking and make you into a new person. You were created to be like God, and so you must please him and be truly holy.
If you have lived very long at all and you are awake, then you know that people and things change. We live in a world of change. Even as the sun and moon continue to move across the sky every man, woman and child on earth is moving toward God or away from Him.
If you are not becoming more like Jesus, then you are becoming less like Him. Life is like the ocean tides. They are either coming in or going out. Each wave on the shore comes so far, but the next one is either closer or farther away.
So here is the essence of life for every person. Either the Spirit of God will "change your way of thinking and make you into a new person" or Satan will change your way of thinking and pull you away from the Truth of God. Every day you are moving one way or the other. Live today and everyday so that every wave on the shore of your life will bring you closer to Jesus Christ.
"Lord Jesus, I want to be more like You when I go to sleep tonight than I was when I woke up this morning. May You be praised forever. Amen."
