24 and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
You are the NEW CREATION, the NEW SELF, the NEW MAN. YOU must do something here, YOU MUST PUT ON the new man. YOU have a responsibility!
The new man, notice has ALREADY been created IN the image/likeness of God which is Righteousness, Holiness and Truth!
How do we PUT ON THE NEW MAN? It says right here in verse 25. LAY ASIDE FALSEHOOD (lying)! SPEAK TRUTH! Speak truth to your neighbor, to those around you.
25 Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.
Stop lying to yourself that you are depressed, stop lying to yourself and saying I have diabetes, stop lying to yourself and saying I have anxiety, stop LYING to yourself and those around you!
Start telling the TRUTH!
Jesus is ALIVE IN ME!
I AM A SUPER CONQUEROR!
I HAVE DIVINE HEALTH!
I DO NOT FEAR, FEAR IS NOT IN ME, ITS A LIE!
GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME! IN ME...IN ME...HE’S ALIVE IN ME!
If you could just begin to understand that he IS GREATER than all things in this world and he IS ALIVE IN YOU!
Stop telling lies to yourself and others and begin to tell the truth and PUT ON the new man and WALK AS HE WALKED! - 1 John 2:6
