A New Look for a New Life

Tuesday, December 08, 2009 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

Ephesians 5:22 throw off your old evil nature and your former way of life, which is rotten through and through, full of lust and deception. 23 Instead, there must be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes. 24 You must display a new nature because you are a new person, created in God's likeness – righteous, holy, and true

It is interesting that even though we are already born-again and new creations in Christ it is necessary to "throw off" the old behaviors.

Because we are new people, it is appropriate to change our surroundings and our mindset. This is like purchasing a house and going in to take out leftover trash, repaint the walls, and remove all items that related to the previous owner.

A new life needs a new look, a new mindset, and a fresh vision.

Most importantly, we need to look like Jesus Christ, live holy, and reflect his character to everyone around us.
