DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR JULY 8, 2019
You, however, did not come to know the Messiah that way. Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Yahshua. 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 Elohim in true righteousness and holiness. Eph 4:20-24
The walk we have chosen requires us to live our life in an entirely different way than we did before. We are now compelled to walk in the very footsteps of the Messiah, to follow His example. We are obligated to view everything through the eyes of the sacred Scriptures. We are expected to be entirely different from our former selves and from the world around us.
The peoples of the world have blinded and alienated themselves from our Savior through their focus on physical goods, physical needs, and physical appearances. However, we are duty-bound to the renewed life we have chosen. Each day remember that the new man must reign supreme in everything you do. Make a conscience effort to live the new life with each thought and action you make.
