New Life ~ Part Two

I often visit Luke 6:35 in my mind. It says, “…For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.” This verse is like a mirror. Do we look into it and walk away unchanged? James 1:23-24. We are to observe, as in a mirror, God’s word as we read it to faithfully apply it to our lives.

Our body is the temple of the Lord. Hiding sin in our heart defiles our temple. We are no longer under sin’s obligation. Romans 6:21 asks us a heart question about our past before salvation. It says, “What fruit did you have then…?…” 

Verse 22 says, “But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness…” Fruit to holiness is succulent, juicy, inviting, and leaves the eaters wanting more of where it came from. Let us yield to the Holy Spirit in every aspect of our lives, that we might bear fruit that will bring God glory.
