Put On Jesus
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.
A grandfather told his grandson a story
about 2 wolves that live inside him.
He told his grandson that the one wolf was good
and the other wolf was bad.
He went on with the story and said...
both wolves were continually fighting inside him.
The grandson interrupted his grandpa
and asked him which wolf wins the most fights?
The grandfather leaned over and told him...
the one I feed the most... always wins.
Paul is telling us in Romans not to feed our sinful desires.
Instead... we need to put on Jesus
and make Him "Lord" over our thoughts and actions.
The more we focus on Jesus
and the more involved we are in sharing Him with others...
the less we will desire the things of the flesh.
Put on Jesus everyday... before stepping out the door.
