Doesn’t it feel hard to look like Jesus? Ephesians 4:24 has been “my verse” for years now and it never quite seems to stick on me. ” Put on your new nature, created to be like God- Righteous, Holy and True.” Wow. Um, me? Righteous ? Holy and True? Yeah, that doesnt sound right.
Well, it is right. It’s actually a promise. When we accept Jesus, we are Righteous, Holy and True in the eyes of God, because of Jesus.
Every day I have to remind myself of this. Actually more like all the time, every minute, I have to remind myself of this. I have to remind my children of this. I want to remind my husband, my friends, my family and its hard and I fail but is still the truth.
Through Jesus we are Righteous, Holy and True and it’s our job to “put on” this new nature.
I hope to encourage you to follow Jesus and to give hope in the times we fail.
