Ever talk to yourself? C’mon, admit it, you do! Well—do you get very far when you roll around your one-sided opinions in your brain? This “brainstorming” spiritual things with the natural mind will never get you too far.
Instead—just like you physically shower and get dressed in the morning—take a minute and “spiritually shower” in the word of God and get “spiritually dressed” in the robes of righteousness in Jesus. Let the mind of Christ be your mind—let His will be your will—let His emotions be your emotions.
Yes, it’s a real discipline but you have to do it. You would no more go out physically naked to start your day…so why go out spiritually naked.
Romans 13:14, "But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts." And Colossians 3:12, "Put on (clothe yourselves) with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." Endure the fire…it’s producing pure gold!
