Renewed

TODAY’S VERSE
“Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.”
Colossians 3:10 (NLT)

TODAY’S MESSAGE
Paul starts this passage with writing, “But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds.” What a list. And how many times have we tried to do this? The only way we can successfully get rid of these negative characteristics is to change ourselves from the inside. We need to get rid of our old sinful nature. But more important is what Paul says in today’s passage. We are to put on our new nature and be renewed. But how? We renew our mind as we get to know our creator God and become more like Him. God has put in us the capacity to know Him. His Holy Spirit inside us guides us and as we attune ourself with Him, as we find a secure attachment to God, the renewing of our mind takes place. We literally create new brain pathways that come from knowing Him. And this makes all the difference in the world. Today, spend time with God. Get to know Him, experience His presence and His immense love for you. As you do, you will experience yourself becoming renewed.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I want to know You more. I want to experience Your presence more. I want to be renewed more and more so I can be like You.
AMEN

Being Renewed

TODAY’S VERSE
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
Romans 12:2 (NIV)

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.”
II Corinthians 4:16 (NIV)

TODAY’S MESSAGE
I was involved an incident involving a theft and while I was talking to the policeman he said, “Reverend, you’re in the forgiveness business, not me. I don’t believe people can change, I don’t believe in rehabilitation. A leopard does not change his spots.” Well, that’s not the message of today’s passage. God is the God of change. He is the author of sanctification, a process of making us more and more into His likeness. Paul tells us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Paul’s own testimony is that he was inwardly being changed and renewed day by day. But do we believe it? How many of us believe in God and yet secretly believe the policeman’s theory that we are hopelessly lost, unable to change any of our spots? The truth is that many neuroscientists are starting to have more faith in man’s ability to change than Christians. Today’s research touts how brain plasticity allows new thought pathways to be created at any time in our life. Books like, “The Brain That Changes Itself” or “Change Your Brain Change Yourself” speak of how “Fearfully and wonderfully” we are made. God, the great creator, is also the re-creator. Today, present your whole self to Him. Ask Him to renew your mind and personality, day by day

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I am so thankful that You do not feel I am stuck in a rut. You believe in me and have a wonderful plan for my life. I commit myself to You and ask that You would renew me day by day and make me more like You.
AMEN
