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 4:21-22 NIV
When you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self…
The early church understood the corruption of the “old self” and that the solution is the death of the Adamic nature. It was central to Paul’s instruction.
Unfortunately, this complete hopelessness of the “former self” – the sin nature – is rarely a subject today. We have books telling us how to “get better,” with steps to improve. But we all discover, by living, the despair of our own futility.
