GET DRESSED UP IN CHRIST
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man…which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts. And be renewed in the spirit of your mind…And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. (Ephesians 4:22-24)
When you get dressed, there is a process you go through. It takes a little time, but it is worth it!
Do you want your faith to become effective? The Apostle Paul said in Philemon 6 that the communication of your faith may become effectual or effective by the “acknowledging of every good thing.” It is a continual process to acknowledge every good thing that is in you in Christ Jesus. Your faith will become effective as you continue to acknowledge, think, meditate, declare, and act as if the Bible is true. This process is called “putting on the new man” in Colossians 3:9-10 and Ephesians 4:23-24.
We are talking about putting on some new clothes. You are renewed in knowledge after the image of Him who created you. God likes to dress people up, and He will tell you how to get dressed up. Put on some new clothes with your identification with Christ and who you are in Christ.
Confession: I am who God says I am! I have what God says I have! I can do what God says I can do!
