When God created us, He purposely crafted us in His very image and we are given the ability to think, decide and choose between right or wrong. We were even gifted the ability of free will ; we are not programmed like a drone or robot. With this gift, it is easy to form a habit of committing offences or even disobeying God and follow our own human reasoning.
The prophet Ezekiel advised the Israelites, “Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall. Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit. Why will you die, people of Israel?” (Ezekiel18: 30 – 31)
As God’s children, we can choose to change and not be a slave to sin and “die.” Let Holy Spirit empower you to take a step of change and walk in the likeness of God.
Romans 8: 13
For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
- John W.
