Entering Your Priesthood

Entering Your Priesthood…

When I was a child and my parents would tell me how early I had to wake up to be ready for school, I came up with a strategy.

Since I wanted to stay up late and sleep as late as I could, I would get dressed in the clothes I was to wear the following day, then put my pajamas over them.

Then in the morning, all I had to do was take off my pajamas and I was ready to go. But the problem was that I was wearing the clothes I had slept in the night before.

Many people in the Lord try to do the same thing. They wear yesterday’s clothes into salvation, the clothes of the old identity, the old attitudes, the old ways, the old beliefs, the old baggage, the old self.

So the Word of God says, take off the old self, put on the new. You have that power, to actually take off the old you, and put on the new you.

Do it. Because you can’t enter the new day that God has for you, wearing the clothes of the night before.

But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new hself, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. Colossians 3:8-10

What old clothes are you wearing in your walk with God? What remnant of your old self still crops up? Seek to put on the new self and walk today in the new.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
