“Instead, clothe yourself with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. And don't let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires.”  
Romans 13:14 

I read this verse this morning and thought about putting on, or clothing myself with Jesus each day.  If I “put” Jesus on before getting out of bed each morning, and recognized that He is really with me, it should make a difference in how I conduct myself.

The verse before says to walk honestly, no rioting, drunkenness, evil cravings of physical nature, conflicts (anger), ill-will or jealousy.  Putting on Jesus would take care of all those things.

“Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.” (Col 3:10)  “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” (Rom 12:2)  As I read The Living, Powerful Word, I am renewed, receive a new nature and learn to know Jesus and become like him.  Wow!
