Be Mindful of Your True Nature!
“Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.” Ephesians 4:28 (KJV)
Being conscious of your divine nature keeps you from evil. You become the righteousness of God when you are born again 2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. It is expected that the inward transformation will reflect on the outside through Christlike behavior. Stealing isn’t part of the new nature of the Christian, because he or she is now a new creation of God 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. They now have divine grace to work with their hands or gifts so that they can be a blessing to someone else. It is better to give and be a blessing than steal or do anything criminal, thereby attracting a curse and becoming a nuisance to society.
Dear beloved, meditate on your new nature of righteousness, peace, holiness, love, and joy, and you will become useful to God and society.
Hallelujah! You are an overcomer!
Prayer Point: Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your Word. Thank you for giving me the grace to work with my hands and gifts in order to be a blessing to others. Amen!
