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.
The Bible contains a phenomenal consistency. The Holy Spirit says the same thing in various ways, imagery and words.
Luke 9:23 And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.
Matthew 16:24 Deny self
Ephesians 4:22 Put off self
Romans 6:11 Count your self dead
The entire human self has no place in the life of Christ.
The normal human self is not capable of being like Him, not able to please Him, not able to perform His purpose or satisfy His holy demands. The self has no part, no welcome, and no validity in the realm of life with God.
