How To ‘Take Off’ Bad Attitudes
James 1:21 says, “Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls….” We have to see our wrong attitudes — our wrong thinking, believing, and acting — as filthy and undesirable before we’ll take a step to change them. Just as we change from a dirty set of clothes to a clean set of garments, we similarly have to acknowledge wrong attitudes and make the decision before God to “take them off” or remove them from our lives. Then we have to put on new clothes — right attitudes that are formed when we humbly receive the Word of God into our souls. That Word has the power — spiritually speaking, the power of an entire army — to change our lives if we’ll allow it.
