A New Look for a New Life

Thursday, June 02, 2011 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" all remnants of our former behavior.

Because we are new people, it is appropriate to change our surroundings and our mindset. This new life is like purchasing a house and then going in to take out leftover trash, repainting the walls, and removing all items 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.
