Romans 13:11-14 ~ The Principles of the New Life

Paul is telling believers that they are lazy, lethargic, half asleep and half awake as they live life.  They are not alert to what is going on around them nor what is happening in their life with all of its influences and where it is taking them. He says we are to put on the Lord Jesus Christ and that means His influence. Christ is already there but I can choose to ignore Him and give myself to other influences. I am to choose to put that off and put Him on.
