The more God’s Word gets in us, the more the Spirit of God renews every part of our brokenness. He purifies our corrupted values. He straightens our crooked understandings. He fills our empty longings. And He delivers on His promises. And as His Spirit works in us and renews us He give us this new ability: the ability to test and approve God’s will. And with that new ability we are now able to discern, appreciate and put God’s will into practice in our everyday lives. And as we do that, as we test and approve God’s will in our lives, will come to the place where we see that everything God wants for our lives is GOOD, PLEASING AND PERFECT.

I don’t know of anything more discouraging than life without hope. And God’s Word gives us hope in spades! Hope to change. Hope that no matter what chaos is swirling around us, God is in control. Hope for help in whatever we are facing. Hope for encouragement when our souls are downcast. Hope for forgiveness when we blow it. Hope in the truth that God will never let you go. Hope in the face of suffering and death. And hope for the day when we see Jesus face to face. God’s Word can give you hope.

One of the best benefits of our new union in Christ is that each one of us has the potential to change and become like Jesus. You no longer have to be controlled by selfish or sinful desires: You can experience victory over anger, greed, lust, hatred, drunkenness, discontent, anxiety and fear. The reason we can experience victory, the reason we have this potential to change because God has put His Spirit in us.

What Paul is praying for here is transformation. That we would be changed by the love of Christ ourselves. That the more we experience Christ’s love in our own lives, the more we will be filled with the love of Christ. And when we are filled with the love of Christ, we become love. That’s the goal: that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. For God is love!

But the biggest transformation Jesus makes is in our relationship with God: God is no longer some abstract, unapproachable judge. He becomes our Father, our “abba” who delights in us, sings over us, and gives us access to His presence. So with transformed affection for God we find ourselves wanting to pray, delighting in praise and growing in thanks for all He has given us in Jesus. And as a result of this new affection, we find ourselves wanting to please Him in every way.

God is a God of reconciliation. He came to resolve our differences – to create peace. When we leave differences unresolved, we leave potential for the deceiver to cause division among us. So, we are to keep short accounts – to be like God and seek to reconcile differences before the day ends.
