How is my attitude these days? Is it focused on the new agreement we have with our Father? Am I moving forward with thoughts of His plan? Am I living an entirely new way of life?
Or, am I bogged down my what I want and deceiving myself about the right direction to take?
Am I thinking about what God is doing or what He hasn’t done?
God’s goal for us is that we live an entirely new way of life. It is a life where the character of Jesus is reproduced in us. Is my conduct and character becoming more like that of Jesus every day?
May I focus my thinking on God’s wonderful plan. May I focus on what God is doing today and have a God fashioned life. May I focus on the character of Jesus and doing the same as Jesus does.
But that’s no life for you. You learned the Messiah! My assumption is that you have paid careful attention to him, been well instructed in the truth precisely as we have it in Jesus. Since, then, we do not have the excuse of ignorance, everything—and I do mean everything—connected with that old way of life has to go. It’s rotten through and through. Get rid of it! And then take on an entirely new way of life—a God-fashioned life, a life renewed from the inside and working itself into your conduct as God accurately reproduces his character in you. Ephesians 4:20-24
