A New Attitude

Colossians 3:10 “And have put on the new man,which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him:”

Jesus said you must be born again if you want to enter the kingdom of heaven.Many have professed this new birth but yet still carry the traits and charactistics of the old man.When a man is born again he is different from the first,yes there will be times when the old man and his ways might show up, but it should be the exception and not the rule.

In our story today Paul reminds us that we are dead to the old man, we have put off lying,anger,wrath and the deeds of our old self.We have put on the new man who is in the image of our saviour,and we are to put on as the elect of God,mercy,kindness,humility,patience,meekness,and above all things love.How can we profess to be Christ like,and born of His spirit ,yet have no resembalance of His person or character.If you being born of your natural father, have some of his characteristics should we also, being born of the spirit of our heavenly Father, also have and show His characteristics?

If you are going to profess to be a child of God, let us make sure we are showing this dying world the characteristics of God.Let us share the love of God and walk in the ways of God, that all who see might come to know that Jesus is the Christ the son of the true and living God,and believe in Him lies the salvation for all who believes.Let us truly live the life we profess.Let us have a new attitude,one of our heavenly Father.
