Today's scripture: Ephesians 4:28
Today’s verse deals specifically with stealing, but I think we can replace
“steal” with any habitual sin.
Whatever it is you deal with, whatever sin you struggle with, you “must [fill
in the blank] no longer.”
We are, after all, “new creatures” in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). We should be
“transformed” every day (Romans 12:2).
We need to do “what is good,” focusing on what is true and noble and just and
pure and excellent (see Philippians 4:8). We need love our neighbors as Christ
loves them—and He said, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends”
And if we do, we’ll want to serve others, sharing with them what God has
blessed us with.
