Just for Today I will put off all…OLD FEELINGS
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; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:22-24 (NIV)
…if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)
When we believed and received Christ in faith, a spiritual change took place within us. We were transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light (Col.1:13)
We became a new creation, set free from our former life to live a new life full of the riches of Christ.
Therefore, any old feelings that might tend to pop up in us now and then should be put off, for they are no longer a part of our new life in Christ, for …our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with and that we should no longer be slaves of sin, for he who has died has been freed from sin. Romans 6:6,7 (NKJV)
Just for Today then, let’s take an inventory of ourselves and put off any old feelings we might find, so that we can begin to really live our new life in Christ as God intends us to.
