Father, I thank You for deliverance from the dominion of darkness and being transferred into the kingdom of Your Son where I find redemption, the forgiveness for my sins. It is in Your holy Kingdom that my heart is transformed from an earthly nature to that of a heavenly nature. As I walk in newness of life I must deny myself of any sinful craving for that which was familiar to my earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed. “I am resolved no longer to linger, charmed by the world’s desires. Things that are higher, things that are nobler; these have allured my sight.” Remind me of this lifelong resolve when I am tempted to give up that which brings lasting joy for that which brings momentary pleasure. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
