About All Things New Series
We like the familiar by thinking it's 'all there is.' God is the Creator, exploding with imagination and bursting with plans, unexpected and beyond our dreams. Are we ready? Will we receive the new?
Ephesians 4:23, 24
ESV “…and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.”
NIV “…be made new in the attitude of your minds and to put on the new self created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.”
This NEW SELF is created not achieved, naturally like God without effort to be so.
To ‘put it on’ requires revelation (new seeing of the new reality). We do not progress in getting better. We progress only in a new seeing of what God has already done… And what He’s done is beyond our imagination, yet it is the fulfillment of our groaning to be different.
