A NEW ATTITUDE
Put on the new man which
was created according to God,
in true righteousness and holiness.
When you came to Christ, you acknowledged that you were a sinner and chose to forsake your sin and the evil things of this world. But Satan will dangle the world and its sin in front of you to tempt you to return to it. Paul warns us not to return to it but to put it off and instead, put on righteousness and true holiness.
That’s not something you do once; it’s something you do every day. One way you do so is described in 2 Timothy 3:16, which says, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” If you want to live correctly, expose yourself to the Word of God. It will help you deal with the traces of the world still present in your life.
