Daily Bible Verse and Devotion on Habits and Lusts

throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. – Ephesians 4:22 (NLT)

In today’s Bible verse, Paul’s not saying that you still have a sinful spirit. We know from scripture that our spirit has been made totally new through Christ. Rather what he’s talking about in today’s Bible verse when he says to throw off the old sinful nature is turning away from our habits and lusts.

The way we act and our habits should reflect Jesus.  We shouldn’t live our lives like we did before we knew Christ. We shouldn’t be living like the world lives. We should live lives that reflect Jesus to the world around us. A big part of doing that is throwing off bad habits and lusts.

As Christians we should be letting our new spirit man lead our habits. We should be following what our spirit desires, not what seems good to our flesh. So challenge yourself today to focus on letting your spirit man lead your choices and habits. Choose to let the new man dominate the things you think, say and do.
