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.

Devotional

Our wonderful Bible gives the answer to every question it arouses.

Put off (lay aside) the old self…

But how? This ‘old self’ clings to me with a conquering grip. ‘It’ rises up and screams, it goes where I don’t want to go and does what I haven’t chosen.

The next verse begins the answer to HOW:

Ephesians 4:22 in the Amplified: Strip yourselves of your former nature (put off and discard your old unrenewed self)…

Verse 23 And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude].
