For some reason this verse has circled around my head all week. I think it has been driven by some current events, but also around thoughts about my we accept behaviors in our selves as just the way I am.
22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds;24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4
The Christ bore our sins for us, and made us new, and he pleads with us to put off the old corrupted self and have a new attitude. It’s this change that is so fundamental to following the Christ and can create so much freedom and power in your life.
What part of your old self are you holding on to as your identity, that would be better off with a replacement?
