Christians Should be Conquerors


Since you are a new creature in Christ Jesus,
Get rid of the old clothes,
Dress yourself as a true Christian.
Wearing the garment of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience,
Forgiving one another,
Not holding any grudges with sisters or brothers.
Nor neighbors,
Rid yourself of anger, rage, malice, slander, filthy language and lying.
By applying,
Complying,
God's word to your life, you're now a new creature.
You should walk this earth with a godly character.
You have taken off the old.
And put on the new garment of righteousness.
Walk in blessedness.
Don't walk this world in sinful idleness.
You are the head and not the tail.
But, walk proudly as the Lion that roars inside of you.
Ready to conquer,
Not to be conquered.



Colossian 3: 7 You use to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
