Devotional For January 26, 2024

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

Imagine clothing yourself with the very essence of Christ. Romans 13:14 calls us to “put on the Lord Jesus Christ.” This goes beyond a mere external covering; it speaks to a transformative, intentional choice to align our thoughts, actions, and desires with Christ’s character. As we make this conscious decision, we are urged to deny any provision for the flesh, refusing to give in to its destructive desires.

Consider what it means to “put on the Lord Jesus Christ” in your daily life. Cultivate habits, thoughts, and actions that reflect His love, compassion, and holiness. Be aware for the desires of the flesh. Let this verse inspire a continual, intentional transformation towards Christ-likeness.

Pray

Lord, I desire to clothe myself with Your character. Help me to make choices that align with Your love and grace. Guard me against making provisions for the flesh, and empower me to resist its destructive desires. May my life be a reflection of You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
