And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption.
But that isn’t what you learned about Christ. Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God — truly righteous and holy.
Ephesians 4:30, 4:20
Show me how to avoid the things that cause you grief. I desire to be free of all the things that cause death, corruption, lust, and deception. Teach me to live a life devoted to your purpose and plan for me. Lead me to train my thoughts to focus on the life I have in you.
