Put On The Lord Jesus Christ
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts. Romans 13:14
Read Romans Chapter 13
The words put on mean to plant, position, and place. This is what Paul is describing when he says to put on the Lord Jesus Christ. Paul communicates the importance of being ready for salvation's call. Being ready is the fruit of putting on the Lord Jesus Christ. While waiting for His return, we are to walk properly and be a living testimony of Jesus Christ. We are to avoid the worldly temptation to feed our fleshly appetites and make no provision for the flesh. This takes action and obedience on our part; it takes looking ahead and avoiding potential temptations and opportunities to sin. One example is using the internet. We are well aware that there is potential harm on the web; therefore we should have a filtering system on our computers. This will keep out the things that may be harmful to us or family members. When we put on the Lord Jesus Christ, we obey the Bible's exhortation to imitate Him.

Prayer: Father, help us to honor and obey You.
