Clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ
"Clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for indulging the flesh. Put a stop to thinking about the evil cravings of your physical nature"
( Romans 13:14 [AMP] ).
Is there something in your life that you would like to put a stop to today? Maybe it's a certain behavior, addiction, or bad attitude that isn't pleasing to God? Just as Adam and Eve were exposed in their sin and needed to be clothed in the Garden, we need to clothe ourselves to protect us from sin. When you "clothe yourself" with the Lord Jesus Christ, you will be strong against temptation.
How do you clothe yourself with Jesus Christ?
In the same way you cover yourself in the natural with clothing. When you receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you are covered and cleansed by His blood. You are restored and renewed. Then, cover your mind with the Word of God. Cover your ears by listening to the Word. Cover your eyes by watching only what is pleasing to the Lord. Cover your mouth by speaking the Word and encouraging those around you. Small children need help to dress up, so do we as spiritual children, therefore you need to just believe in Jesus Christ, make every attempt to follow Him and surrender to the Spirit of Christ. It is the Spirit of Christ - the Holy Spirit, who will help you be clothed with Jesus Christ. As you cover yourself with Christ, you will be strong against temptation, and you will walk in the victory the Lord has planned for you!
[ Prayer for the Day ]
Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Your Son Jesus to pay the penalty for my sins. Thank You for providing a way out of temptation through Your Son so that I can stand clean before You. Help me stand strong as I submit every area of my life to His Spirit. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
