“And put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth” (Ephesians 4:24).

We are created anew to live in the righteousness and holiness Christ gives in truth.  Christ is truth and in Him we have life.  Live this new life in Christ so that You may be made whole and become as He is.  Do not conform yourself to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind in Christ.  In Him is all life and in Him is the hope of the ages.  This is the promise: through Christ, you will live with Him forever.

Lord, help me live into the new life which is mine by grace.  Let me not live this life just for myself, for that is a lie and impossible.  Bring me beyond myself so that I would hold fast to the truth of the ages; in You Christ, is my hope and life.  Lord, You know all that is needed.  Guide me in the way I need to go and keep me from wavering.  In You is the hope and promise I need.  In You is life.

Lord Jesus, You know all that I need.  You know what is before me.  Guide me Lord and keep me on the path You know I need to follow.  In and through all things, keep me from wandering so that I may be diligent in the tasks You would have me accomplish.  Lord, You know all that is needed.  Let me trust in You alone and above all things.  In You alone is the hope for us all.  Amen.
