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.
We’ve been in Paul’s letter to Ephesus but he gives the same message to Colossae.
But now put away and rid yourselves [completely] of all these things: anger, rage, bad feeling toward others, curses and slander, and foulmouthed abuse and shameful utterances from your lips! Do not lie to one another, for you have stripped off the old (unregenerate) self with its evil practices…
Colossians 3:8-9 AMPC
This is the nature of the old self. And to think we can rid ourselves – COMPLETELY – of this nature in all its horror! To hear this is to be renewed at once in the mind.
