“PUT ON THE LORD JESUS” [Rom 13:11-14]

“Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the desires of the flesh.” vs14

We are to put on the brand new life. Our time living in the flesh is over. God has equipped us for this great battle, and we’re to put on the armor of light, using weapons of grace, justification, and the power of the Spirit: We’re to live uprightly by the gospel.

First, the time has come to live differently [vs11-12]. “And do this, understanding the occasion. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.” It is already late, and we are nearer salvation’s fulfillment. The hour is speedily coming for the resurrection of the dead, the Judgment, and our transformation into the heavenly kingdom.

We lived in darkness for a long time, doing all manner of evil. Now war against it wisely. God has equipped you, not to live in sin but to walk with Him in righteousness. He is calling you to battle against the flesh by the Spirit.

Secondly, you have all that you need in this war of faith [vs12]! “The night is nearly over; the day has drawn near. So let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.” He forgives your sins and gives you a new nature. He gives you CONTINUED grace and mercy [Rom 5:1-2; Rom 12:1-2]. He sends the Spirit with power. Simply take His commands seriously, and look up to God. Do not forget your armor by fighting in the flesh, but use the hope of the gospel. Believe you can do all things through Christ, and He is with you and not against [Rom 8:1-2]. You are alive from the dead, and there is no condemnation.

Many hear the battle, and they want none of it. “The sons of Ephraim were archers equipped with bows, Yet they turned back in the day of battle [Ps 78:9].” They want forgiveness without warfare, peace without overcoming sin, and Christ without following Him! They want to be Christian in name but live ungodly. They want to add doctrine to a sinful life, rather than be transformed by it. It cannot happen: We must give up the flesh and live in love, holiness, and uprightness. We must live like Christ.

Thirdly, living the gospel is maturity: It is becoming godly in word and deed; it is putting off our old ways for the new. “Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see. Don’t participate in the darkness of wild parties and drunkenness, or in sexual promiscuity and immoral living, or in quarreling and jealousy. Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ [vs13-14].”

Transformation hits every part of us - what we think and do, how we respond to insults and temptations, how we control ourselves. We feast without drunkenness, abstain from sex outside of marriage, and live at peace with one another. Putting on Christ makes us like Him, showing not only love for grace but for the Giver, not only new belief but new character. Living like Christ shows the Father’s stamp in you, and it is the number one priority of believers. We cannot control our spouses or bosses, but if we control ourselves we show God’s power. We are not living to be successful at ANYTHING more than we are determined to honor God with Christ-like behavior. We see the beauty and the value of the Son!

Finally, if you love Him, then you obey Him “Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the desires of the flesh.” He’s given us the gospel and the command.
