A Path Toward Righteousness

The path toward righteousness provides opportunity for me to be trasformed to the likeness of Christ's, sinless. Free from the bondage of a fallen world.

Why do I still sin? I choose to. Why do I choose to? To satisfy my flesh, to fit in with the crowd, or any other numerous reasons I may try to justify.  Who is in control? Me or God?

Transformation is a process of which I learn why, what, and how I must surrender my "rights" to my Father, God. I am responsible for my choices and actions.

Is fulfillment is Christ impossible? No. In Christ, am I identified by God as a dirty rag? No. I am made pure through Christ. He washed away my right to guilt and shame on the cross. I am His prize.

Ephesians 5:3,4 identifies how I am to reflect the immage of Christ to myself and the world. I fall short at times. I do not excuse my failure, I confess it to myself, a brother I can confide in and my Father.I must understand the root or link that caused my weakness and with God's strenghth, delete it. I must allow God to renew my mind. Defragment my hard drive. Allows for faster download and proper function of my computer.

Help me Father, as I surrender to you, to be transformed by the renewing of my mind, to have the mind of Christ  to reflect my true identity, a bondslave ( heart, mind, and soul) of your Kingdom. Help me to practice your ways so others will see you through the window of my heart.
