Our futile minds seek to be like everyone else;
We were darkened, alienated, ignorant, hard-hearted, callous, greedy and impure.
But we have learned Christ!
May we put off our corrupt and deceitful desires.
May we be renewed in our minds putting on the new self, to be righteous and holy like you.
May we not grieve the Spirit but instead be filled by the Spirit as we replace
Lies with truth;
Anger with peace;
Theft with generosity;
Evil talk with encouragement;
Malice with kindness;
Anger with forgiveness;
Impurity with gratitude;
Darkness with light;
Foolishness with wisdom;
Drunkenness with praise.
And domination with submission.
