Proverbs 9 11-9-18

Proverbs is about priorities. What are yours? Is following Christ top priority in your life? Start today! Turn to Him now.

Proverbs 9:8-9 Rebuke a wise man [or woman] and he will love you. Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser and love you for it.

Christ is more about our intent than our actions, for He knows that if He can change the way we think, it will change the way we feel, and therefore what we do. He’s all about the “long haul.” Why do we fight Him so? Are we afraid we will lose some of ourselves? Who we are in Christ is who we were created to be! Why hang onto old, gross grave clothes when He is offering us new, clean, heavenly robes, robes of Sonship? These robes are designed to last for eternity! They are wedding garments that identify us as part of His wedding party (see Matthew 22:1-14).

Jesus Christ has entered our hearts; now He wants to renew our minds:

Ephesians 4:23-24 to be made new in the attitude of your minds;

putting off our old person and his selfish ways,

[24] and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

THIS is who we are in Christ! Let’s strive to be THAT person today!

NOTE: Want to know how? Read Ephesians 4-6!
