Day 16 | A New Look for a New Life – "Who I Am In Christ" Firm Foundation 21-Day Devotional

Saturday, October 16, 2021 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

Ephesians 5:22 (NLT) 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 though we are already born again and new creations in Christ, it is sometimes necessary to “throw off” old or hindering behaviors.

Because we are new people, it is appropriate to change our surroundings and our mindset. This is like purchasing a house, then 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, because of our relationship we can look like Jesus Christ in our character, live holy, and reflect His character to everyone around us.

Remember, whatever God requires, He provides.

Reflection Questions:
1. Why is it necessary, and within your ability, to throw off old behaviors? 
2. What “old things” need to go?
3. How can you reflect Christ to others through your life? (By whose ability?)
