Ephesians 4:22-32 … put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, putting on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore, also put away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.
The Purpose of GOD’s HOLY SPIRIT is to Empower us to overcome evil, which consequently Glorifies GOD. Since we Were Created in GOD’s Likeness, becoming Holy (as GOD Is Holy), is our Destiny. When GOD Has Finished Perfecting us, we will be Enabled to take our place as GOD’s Children in The Eternal Paradise of Heaven. All we need to do is to allow GOD to Teach us how to conform to His Likeness, and to be thankful for His Love. What a Blessing it is to be A Child Of GOD!!! revrob
