When God created Adam & Eve, He encoded into the man and the woman’s “operating system” a moral code with godly parameters within which desires were to be fulfilled.
Male and Female were designed to enjoy life, liberty, and to love God and each other.
When Adam and Eve abused their liberty by seeking the fulfillment of tempting desires by going outside of the parameters of their God-given operating system, a sin-virus was introduced to their system which corrupted many aspects of their hearts and minds.
Through Jesus Christ we can begin to reinstall the factory parameters of our operating system, thus diminishing the self destructive patterns of our corrupted souls.
This requires a conscious deletion of the corrupted patterns, and a conscious return to godly patterns and parameters.
“Put to death… whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.
You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.”
( Colossians 3:5-10 )
Let’s Reformat, Reinstall, and Reboot our lives in accordance with God’s operating manual, the Scriptures.
