Ephesians 2:2 At that time, you walked in the way of this world, in conformity to the ruler of the domain of the air—the ruler of the spirit who is no operating in the sons of disobedience.  (Tree of Life Translation)

Old habits die hard.  When we first come into relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ, we are on an emotional high.  It is easy for us to be excited about getting into the Word, the Holy Bible and to pray and to worship.  Eventually our emotional high subsides.  Old habits slowly creep back into our lives.  This is one of Satan’s favorite weapons.  We must be careful in how we are walking.  Sometimes it’s hard to be different from others.  Quite often we want to blend in.  It is into Christ Jesus we are to blend.  It is His words to us we are to conform.  In and of ourselves we cannot do this.  We must rely on the Holy Spirit.  We must keep our ears open to His gentle whisper and our eyes and minds on the written word as our guide.  Let us not operate in the way of the world.  Let us live our lives as imitaters and followers of Jesus Christ.
