Let Us Walk Properly

June 3, 2013
Romans 13:11-14
11 This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes, and put on the shining armor of right living. 13 Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see. Don’t participate in the darkness of wild parties and drunkenness, or in sexual promiscuity and immoral living, or in quarreling and jealousy. 14 Instead, clothe yourself with the
presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. And don’t let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires.
This verse was screaming at me this morning and I felt that many of us need to hear this as a reminder, myself included. The New King James Version says in verse 13 ‘Let us walk properly’, I really like that.
As with many of you probably can relate I struggle with many things everyday, from lust, to anger, gossip and disobeying authority. So I totally need to strive for the things in this verse more each day. Everyday Im closer to death, everyday Im closer to facing God and will need to give account of all my actions and in-actions.
I not only want to approach Him boldly, but I want all of you to have that same confidence. Knowing that you persevered, you overcame, you endured and you were victorious.
So my dear brothers that I pray for daily, your salvation is nearer now than ever, remove your dark deeds, live decently, walk properly, think of ways to avoid the evil/lustful desires, and clothe yourselves with the light and truth of Jesus Christ.
With a tender heart for all of you in the Works of Jesus,

    Amen and Amen!!!! May the LORD strengthen us men to live Godly lives. It is a daily struggle but one that we can face head on and with confidence knowing that the LORD is with us to overcome any temptation, lustful thought, or evil desire that the devil throws our way. Strength & Honor in the LORD!!!
