Oh To Be Wise Meditations

LORD, help me escape the corruption in this world. By your divine power, you have given me everything I need for living a godly life. I have received all of this by coming to know you in your marvelous glory and excellence. Jesus, you have given us such great and precious promises. They enable us to share in your divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires. I can feel the passion the wicked have for sin. I can feel the raw energy that sinful pleasures can provide. I have felt them before and they are ever before me daily. The spirit of this age is the same spirit since the fall of humanity. Decaying over time, sin has been destroying God's image in every passing generation. The draw is stronger and gaining in the world. But the Spirit of Christ is renewing minds all around the world as well. We can find rest for our restless hearts in Jesus. Our Father in heaven is pouring his love in our hearts through our Savior. We can flourish in a world dying in sin, as well as lead others to the sweet waters of forgiveness in Christ. We must escape the corruption in this world or we will perish with the wicked. You cannot manufacture righteousness, Holiness has to come from relationship with Christ. Your spirit needs Gods Spirit so that you can overcome this world. Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to him. But if Christ lives in you, the Spirit is life for you because you have been put right with God, even though your bodies are going to die because of sin. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

Meditate Gal. 6:8
