Romans 13:14

"Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature." Romans 13:14, NIV
"Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts." Romans 13:14 NASB.
A friend posted this verse on Facebook a few days ago, and it pretty much rocked my world. It speaks to me about my thoughts. You know, Jesus said that our sin begins in our thoughts. Hating someone = murder. Lustful thoughts = adultery. Etc.
Repenting and changing outward behavior is one thing, but changing our thought habits is something totally different. So the message God is repeating to me this week is "Take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ Jesus."
