Out With The Old & In With The New

Eph 4:21  If so be that ye have heard Him, and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: 
Eph 4:22  That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 
Eph 4:23  And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 
Eph 4:24  And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Paul used action words such as "put off" the old man, to describe how we respond to our first love that we found in Jesus. It is true that all things of old are passed away and everything has become new in Christ as stated in 2 Cor 5:17, but He does expect us to live up to our end of the responsibility  in putting them off. We should never use this time of grace we are in as a license to sin.

Galatians chapter 5 is an excellent chapter to read to keep ourselves in check with our Spirit led walk with Christ. Keep on going! You can do all things through Christ which strengthens you. Phil 4:13

In Jesus perfect love and peace,
