Which self are you wearing today ?

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to 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. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭22-24‬ NIV)

attitude def. – a complex mental state involving beliefs and feelings and values and dispositions to act in certain ways; “he had the attitude that work was fun”

What are your beliefs, feelings and values about the new self ?

I am reminded of a verse.

He touched their eyes and said, “Become what you believe.” It happened. They saw. (‭Matthew‬ ‭9‬:‭29 MSG)

Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you”; (‭Matthew‬ ‭9‬:‭29‬ NIV)

Another translation says: It will be done just as you believe it would.

So what do you believe about the new self ? Is it a reality for you ? Do you believe what God says about you after becoming a disciple ?

What is the deceitful desires deceiving you into ?

Comment on what are your thoughts abou the new life and the desires we need to get rid of ???
