“And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind, having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude. And put on the new nature, the regenerate self, created in God’s image, godlike in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:23-24
As we start the lenten season today instead of focusing on giving up what we may eat or participate in, why not think of things that cross our path every day, what we think, say or do.
Let’s see if we can go without worry, gossip, or envy. The verse today tells us that when we accept Jesus into our heart He begins a process of changing us. It also says we must allow ourselves to be constantly renewed, so it’s not a one time event. We need a fresh mental and spiritual attitude every day. So envision this, take off your old self, think about what you are thinking and saying, and put on Jesus. How would He act, what would He say, what would He do?
Let’s have a real WWJD moment every day for at least the next 40 days. They say that after you do something for 30 days it becomes a habit. What a wonderful habit to start.
