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.
In Ephesians 4, before Paul says lay aside the old self, he creates a standard, a goal – a GLORIOUS REASON to discard the old nature:
“…until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.”
This is the hope and vision that gives the motive and incentive to discard ‘self.’ This absolute wonder. Every believer is to live in the “fullness of Christ” Himself.
Fullness in this verse means “all His virtues and excellencies.”
