Colossians 3:8 But now YOU YOURSELVES are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth
There are so many things that God has instructed us to do with regard to our behavior. We are responsible to change our old habits of anger, wrath, blasphemy, bad language and gossip.
Unfortunately, many times we try to give this responsibility back to God by continuing to do wrong and then praying “Father take these things that are not of you away from me.”
God has given us the ability to discontinue the bad habits we developed before we knew Him as our personal Lord and Savior.
Now it’s up to us to accept that responsibility and live according to the Holy Spirit, committing all things to Christ.
