LET US LIVE DECENTLY

Rom 13:13-14

13 Let us live decently as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in discord and jealousy. 14 Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to arouse its desires. NET

If a leader of any other religion rapes a lady or commits any other heinous crime, it doesn't make the news, but it is an entirely different story when a pastor or Christian leader is the one involved. One of the things that always challenges me about people who are not born again is their very high moral expectations from we Christians. Many times, we forget how much they expect from us and think they see us in the same light as they see themselves, while in reality they see us as moral beacons.

One thing our text for today reveals is that the way to truly live decent lives is to put on Christ and make no provision for the flesh to arouse its desires. Putting on Christ is what gives us strength to resist the flesh. The way to put on Christ is by staying filled with the Spirit; the way to stay filled with the Holy Spirit is by avoiding fleshly indulgences (like drunkenness) and maintaining a Joyful and thankful state of heart; always thanking God for all things, making melody in your heart always to the lord, and also maintaining good Christian company (see Eph 5:18-21)

As you go into today, determine to stay filled with the Holy Spirit by maintaining a joyful and thankful mood. Consciously make sure there's a song in your heart all day.

Prayer: Dear God, as I go into today, help me properly express you and never bring reproach to your holy name, in Jesus mighty name. Amen
