We have wonderful encouragement and direction found in the Bible in the book of Ephesians, chapter 4.

Ephesians 4:22-24

22 to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, 23 and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, 24 and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

As a believer in Christ we are to kiss our old selves good bye and say hello to a new life. It is important to see that the structure of these verses goes like this: Say goodbye to the old self, RENEWAL IN THE SPIRIT OF YOUR MINDS, then put on the new self. The new self is covered and full of God, which includes living out His righteousness and holiness. However, it is important that you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior so that you can have a renewal of your mind in order for the new self to be lived.

If you are already a Christian then today spend time in prayer and then focus on living today better than you did yesterday in the eyes of God. If you are not a Christian, would you consider sending in a prayer request on the button below and one of our Pizza Ranch prayer team members will take on the opportunity to pray for you and/or with you today.
