You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
This passage describes transformation in Christ. This is what I long for, yet every day I fall short. But we are human beings, not meant to “be God” but to strive to “be like God.” I will never be perfect. But God, I believe, sees a small change in me and smiles. I am working on myself, with God’s guidance. Pastor Gil has helped me to find that guidance through encouraging reading of scripture. I never before so consistently heard God’s direction as I do now.
Holy Father, you are showing me the way. Help me to keep my eyes and my heart open to your guidance. Give me patience, Lord, to put into practice what I am learning. Amen
