THOUGHTS FOR YOUR DAY.

And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
The new man, the new creation is “created in righteousness and true holiness”.
This is having reference to the nature of the same New Creation Paul tells us about in;
2 Corinthians 5:17-18
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
Notice the phrase, “and all things are of God”.
Now in, 2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
We’ve been made the “righteousness of God”. You can’t get any more righteous than that.
Now it’s a matter of you and I walking out this righteousness and holiness. Just like the love of God that’s been shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost. We choose to walk in love, righteousness and holiness. It’s all in there, in the new man, in our recreated human spirit.
One more scripture,
1 Corinthians 1:30
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
Jesus ... is made unto us ... wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, (or holiness) and redemption. It’s all in us, by the Holy Spirit who is in us. Look inside, not to yourself but to Him, The Greater One who dwells in you.
Let Him live and move and have His being in you, today ... everyday!
Have an amazing day and life in Jesus!
