Scripture writing - Ephesians 4:22-28



Scripture:
22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
27 Neither give place to the devil.
28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

Observations:
Verse 22- When we are born again, our conversation, behavior, and thought process change. The new person we become in Christ is no longer corrupted by deceitful lusts.
Verse 23- Let the way you think be changed.
Verse 24- We begin to act like, talk like, think like, and look like Christ because God recreates us in righteousness and true holiness.
Verse 25- Speak truthfully because we are all the one body of Christ.
Verse 26- It is ok to be angry, but don't be controlled by emotion. Being controlled by emotion only leads to sin. Don't dwell on or hang onto anger. Let it go quickly while it is still today.
Verse 27- Don't give any opportunity to the devil.
Verse 28- Work to make an honest income without stealing, and give to others in need.

Application:
When we are born again, God recreates us in righteousness and holiness. The way we think, act and speak changes. We tell the truth. We don't steal. We work to earn our money honestly. We give to others when they are in need. We control our emotions, and our emotions don't control us. We avoid giving any opportunity to the devil.

Prayer:
Dear God in Heaven,
Thank you for remaking me into a new person, an upgraded and improved version of my former self. Continue to remold and reshape me in your righteousness and holiness. I know you are not done with me yet. Help me to stay in control of my emotions and let good the negative ones quickly. Help me to live a life that sets a good example to others, and help me to know when I am about to give opportunity to the devil so that it can be avoided. Renew the thought process in my mind.
In Jesus’ Holy name,
Amen
