So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy.
1 Peter 1:13-15 NLT
Have you prepared your mind today for action?
Are you ready to exercise self control?
Beloved if you are not prepared and ready to live for God. You will find your self slipping back into old patterns and habits of living. As believers we are called to live as Christ lived. We are called to walk in holiness.
This doesn’t and will not happen by accident. You have to purpose in your heart and mind to be prepared and ready to live for God.
Three ways you can daily prepare your heart and mind to exercise self control.
