“But you did not learn Christ in this way, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus” (Ephesians 4:20-21)
We do not come to Christ, nor live the Christ-life through the hedonism of this age. It is not about how we feel, but about the One who has given His life for us in order that we may have eternal life in Him. Do not turn the gift into a curse by mocking it or making of it something that it is not. Be led by Jesus and come into His grace and mercy. Jesus is the truth and in Him is all life.
Lord, let me see clearly the truth of Jesus and the life He gives. Let me hear clearly Your Word on these matters so that I would never be led astray by the lies of this age. Guide me in all truth. Your Word is truth. Lead me into the life You offer so that I may now and always be guided by You. May I live into the new life You give through grace and be transformed by You, the author of all life.
Lord Jesus, You have come to infuse in me Your life. Through You I have life and being. Guide me, O Lord, so that I may now and always abide in You and You in me. Keep me from the wiles of the wicked one and help me stay on the narrow path which You have set before me. Through You, Lord, I do have hope and a future. Keep me for the future You have given me through grace. Amen.
