Putting On the New Man ~

God . . .

You offered to me this new man,
and asked me to put him on
You challenged me to grow in him
and to be willing to be Spirit drawn.

You told me my life was useless,
and my heart was as dry as dust
that my mind was full of darkness
overflowing with the sin of lust.

You asked me to give to You,
the worldly joys in my possession
You told me that in return for them
You’d give me Your pure perfection.

You made me open up my eyes,
and see the uselessness in what I do
showing me no matter how hard I try
they’re fruitless when done without You.

You revealed to me that all my pain,
was from the emptiness deep inside
and why this old and new man . . .
can’t live peacefully side by side.

You asked me to make a choice,
a dark heart for one full of light
I chose to put on the righteous man
and to give the old one ~ a holy fight!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:24
King James Version

And that ye
put on the new man,

which after God
is created in righteousness

and true holiness.

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
