Transformation Today: A Daily Devotional With Victor Adeyemi
Topic: Living in Righteousness
“And be renewed in the spirit of your mind” Ephesians 4:24
Being in Christ Jesus makes you a new creature. You possess a brand new spirit. All things become new indeed for the believer in Christ Jesus.
Why then do you sometimes feel awkward with God? The problem is not with your spirit because it was completely transformed at the new birth. The problem lies in the mind (which needs to be renewed) and body. It is, therefore, every believer’s responsibility to renew his mind daily with God’s word.
In Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, he explained that every believer has been redeemed and re-created in righteousness in their spirit. However, it is our responsibility to put on the new man in Christ by renewing our minds.
The word of God is the only effective tool for this renewal. It has the power to re-program our minds and keep us in tune with the re-created spirit within.
So from today, make it a priority to keep God’s word before your eyes (study) and in your heart (meditation). The more you do, the more you’ll stay conscious of your right standing with God as a new creation in Christ Jesus.
Confession: I put off concerning my former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to deceitful lusts. I declare that I am renewed in the spirit of my mind, putting on the new man who was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
