The Fashion of a Man

At First Peter Chapter One, the Apostle taught at Verse Fourteen that obedient children of God must not fashion themselves according to the former lusts which characterized their ignorance. That a man can fashion himself at all indicates that he has choices to make. At the Twenty Fourth of Joshua, the Israelite leader called upon his charges to choose that day whom they would serve. The choices were really only two: they would serve the idol and imagined gods of the heathen, or they would serve Jehovah. The latter had already been chosen by Joshua and his family. At the Sixth of Romans, Paul cautioned that we are the servants absolute of what we serve, whether it be sin unto death or obedience of God unto righteousness. Paul was thankful for those who had abandoned the service of sin, and chose instead to render from their hearts obedience to the doctrine of the true Gospel. Such choices determine the fashion of a man.
