Active participation

Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy. Eph. 4:23-24

Change happens because we participate in it. We surrender our thoughts and attitudes to the Holy Spirit and consciously adopt His thinking and attitudes. We deliberately put on righteousness and holiness and resist our old habits and urges. Jesus issues an invitation to follow not to be dragged.

Lord, help me be an active participant in my personal transformation and in the change Your Kingdom brings to earth.
