Put On Jesus

But put on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.
Romans 13:14

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.

  1. Paul, One time at prison ministry a lady from an Alliance Church in Erie came with us as a guest speaker. She wanted to share her testimony. She came in all dressed in dark black clothing. When she got to the part about clothing herself in Christ and how she received his free gift of salvation, she began to take off the black clothes, and underneath she had a white suit on to give an illustration of how to clothe yourself in Him. One of the prisoners also accepted Christ that night because of that testimony.
