Put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.”
I have been struggling with my level of physical fitness lately. It feels like I have slipped so far away from a healthy lifestyle that it is now impossible to return…
I think we feel that way in our Christian walk at times. That we have slipped so far away as to make a return impossible.
Ephesians 4:24 makes two significant points that dispel this lie that plagues us.
1) Christianity means that fundamental change is possible.
We can, and do, change as we trust more in Jesus.
2) Christians are free from the mechanistic view that our past determines our future.
Our background (bad experiences, bad parents, etc.) does not determine our destiny.
The impossible for us is easy to God. Let’s reject the lie, cast of the old self and embrace the new self in Christ.
