So I’m telling you this, and I insist on it in the Lord: you shouldn’t live your life like the Gentiles anymore. They base their lives on pointless thinking, and they are in the dark in their reasoning. They are disconnected from God’s life because of their ignorance and their closed hearts. They are people who lack all sense of right and wrong, and who have turned themselves over to doing whatever feels good and to practicing every sort of corruption along with greed. But you didn’t learn that sort of thing from Christ. Since you really listened to him and you were taught how the truth is in Jesus, change the former way of life that was part of the person you once were, corrupted by deceitful desires. Instead, renew the thinking in your mind by the Spirit and clothe yourself with the new person created according to God’s image in justice and true holiness. (Ephesians 4:17-24, CEB)
When you were claimed by God as a child of the kingdom you were transformed the old you died and a new you was born.
Therefore we must put away things we have known and live the life that God has called us to. We should live and walk in the ways of Christ and not of the flesh of this world.
We are a new person and Christ has led us to be a light to the world. Let us claim that life and live into it sharing light in everything we do.
Loving People. Loving God.
