Walk in newness of life.
As ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.--I beseech you, . . . brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.
If any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.--In Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace [be] on them, and mercy.--This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind.--But ye have not so learned Christ; if so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus.--Put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Ro 6:4,19 12:1,2 2Co 5:17 Ga 6:15,16 Eph 4:17,20,21,24
Thy will be done.
O LORD, I know that the way of man [is] not in himself: [it is] not in man that walketh to direct his steps.--Not as I will, but as thou [wilt].--Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul [is] even as a weaned child.
We know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what [is] the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to [the will of] God.
Ye know not what ye ask.--He gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.--These things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
I would have you without carefulness.--Thou wilt keep [him] in perfect peace, [whose] mind [is] stayed [on thee]: because he trusteth in thee.
