About Finding the New You Series
Revelation is given in the practical places. Every life experience is buried treasure for discovery of who God is and what Jesus has given: a whole, new YOU.
Ephesians 4:22 AMPC
Strip yourselves of your former nature [put off and discard your old unrenewed self] which characterized your previous manner of life and becomes corrupt through lusts and desires that spring from delusion…
We do not have single problems, bad habits, or certain character flaws. Our problem is not in units but in totality.
We have a nature, a whole inborn identity called Adam. This is the ‘old self’ – a literal identity we inherited. All sins issue from this fallen nature: an entire human quality, wholly corrupt, utterly fallen and increasingly delusional. A nature that is master of self-deception and self-preservation.
