21 Days of Prayer – Day 21
You were taught not to live the way you used to. You must get rid of your old way of life. That’s because it has been made impure by the desire for things that lead you astray.
Put Off Your Old Self
When we invite Jesus into our lives, we repent of our sins and ask for
God’s forgiveness. To repent means not only to be sorry but also to
turn completely away from sin. To repent means to turn our backs to
sin and our faces to God.
The minute that we invited Jesus into our lives, we became a new creation.
But this doesn’t mean that our work (or his) is done. “Putting off your old
self” is a continual process. We need to continue to turn away
from sin and work to put evil out of our lives completely.
Sometimes this means that we need to break bad habits. Sometimes it
means avoiding activities and situations that can lead us to temptation.
The Bible tells us that the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for
someone to devour. Evil is very real, but Christians don’t have to fall victim to it.
By relying on God and resisting evil, we can have peace in our lives and rest in
- What does it mean to “put off your old self”?
- How can you avoid temptation?
Dear God, thank you for saving us from sin. Please help us to put off
our old selves every day. Please protect us from temptation and help us
to serve only you. Amen.
