PUT ON THE NEW MAN OF RIGHTEOUNESS AND HOLINESS
20That, however, is not the way of life you learned 21when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. 22You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
4: 22-24 We have abandoned our old way of life that we followed before we believed in Christ and left it completely in the past. Therefore, we should leave sin, shame, and regret behind us like old clothes to be thrown away. When we accept Christ’s gift of salvation (2: 8-10), it requires both a once-for-all-time decision and a daily, conscious commitment. We must no longer be driven by our old, sinful desires and impulses. We must put on the new self, dress for holy action, head in the new direction, and use the new way of thinking that the Holy Spirit gives us (also see Colossians 3: 5-15).Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and put off the old man and put on the righteouness and holiness of CHRIST!!
