Romans 13:14But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
We moved into our current home in 1999. When we took ownership, it was completely dilapidated and unliveable. The house had no central heating. The window frames were rotting, the carpets were sparse and threadbare. The bathroom units were defunct, the kitchen had no units in it at all and the whole house stank. In one of the bedrooms, there was a large oily, smelly patch on the floor as though something had died there. Thankfully, we received the keys to the house one month before we moved in and so were able to get in and transform the place before we moved in. Now it’s a lovely warm and appealing home.
God’s word calls for us to be transformed by renewing ourselves in Christ. It tells us to crucify the old self and be raised to newness through the death and resurrection of Jesus; to live this new life by faith in Jesus, who loved us and gave himself for us. Sadly, I meet many people who verbally assert they are Christians but have never truly been transformed; they still live and behave like the old man. We are called to put on Christ – get dressed in Jesus – so the world no longer sees us as old, derelict creatures but as transformed new creations revealing the beauty of Christ.
God’s plan is for you and me to live in the newness of life that faith in Christ brings. God’s plan is for you and me to flourish in the fulness of his blessings and glory. God’s plan is for you and me to live as transformed people, revived by his grace and mercy. And God’s plan is for you and me to demonstrate his love, strength and splendour to the world around us by the power of the Holy Spirit.
God-tracking is living like a new creation

DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY
Come, O Holy Spirit and turn my old derelict house into a new magnificent homestead, for your glory
“Dear Lord, I’m sorry that I keep falling back into the old me. Please forgive me. I make a choice now to leave the old life behind – to crucify the old me – and be transformed by the renewing of my mind. I take off my old nature as, though I was getting undressed, put on Christ. May the world see you in me. May I live and behave according to the principles of your word and not the ways of man. Thank you for the newness of life I find in Christ. Thank you that I am a new creation, in Christ. Come, O Holy Spirit and turn my old derelict house into a new magnificent homestead, for your glory. Amen.”
