“Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life—even though invisible to spectators—is with Christ in God. He is your life. When Christ (your real life, remember) shows up again on this earth, you’ll show up, too—the real you, the glorious you. Meanwhile, be content with obscurity, like Christ.
And that means killing off everything connected with that way of death: sexual promiscuity, impurity, lust, doing whatever you feel like whenever you feel like it, and grabbing whatever attracts your fancy. That’s a life shaped by things and feelings instead of by God. It’s because of this kind of thing that God is about to explode in anger. It wasn’t long ago that you were doing all that stuff and not knowing any better. But you know better now, so make sure it’s all gone for good: bad temper, irritability, meanness, profanity, dirty talk.”
Colossians 3:3-8 MSG
So Tayo you are making a big deal with this Jesus news! Whatchu think, He’d rather be cursed than lose me- that to me is a great deal!
My life is not my own the owner of “my life” will be making an appearance soon, I’d like Him to appreciate how I have lived His life with His bro and bestie ( the HolySpirit) in this shell of a body!
As a Christian I am not what is trending so I am okay living in what the world terms as obscurity, is my Father happy with me? Then I am fine.
Things I used to do – talk carelessly, my choice of 🎶 and other impurities I used to think was cool, can’t do them anymore because I know better through the leading of the HolySpirit. A relationship with the HolySpirit is beautiful it’s indescribable because there really isn’t anything like it.
Is your life shaped by God?
