COVENANT FAMILY DAILY MEDITATION
DATE: SUNDAY, 7TH JULY, 2019
THEME: BECOMING A MAN (1)
TOPIC: HOW TO PUT ON THE NEW MAN.
“And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him” (Colossians 3:10).
POINTS OF EMPHASIS:
God made man in his own image and likeness, but man lost it to the devil. But thank God for Jesus who became God’s redemptive plan for mankind.
By default, everyone (male and female) has the nature of the old man in their lives. This nature is the product of evil, immortality, wickedness, lust, sexual sins, criminality, theft and every evil that can be thought of.
In the light of this, God sought after another means to recruit men into his kingdom through Jesus Christ, the new man.
How do I put on the new man?
🎯Be saved: Salvation regenerate a man’s spirit by displacing the human spirit and replacing it with the spirit of God.
🎯Be Baptised: Being baptised is to experience water baptism by immersion, a symbolism of Jesus’ death and resurrection and be filled with the Holy spirit.
🎯Mortify your body members: There are parts of your body that allows you steal, covet, fornicate or fight.
Whatever parts makes you sin, put them to death by yielding yourself to the spirit instead of obeying the lust of the flesh that leads to destruction.
🎯Renew your mind: Many are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
You can only be set free when you understand the truth that pertains to your freedom and you apply it. Renewing the mind can only be done by studying and applying the word of God.
Truths are in the word of God.The more you renew your mind with the word of God, the more the nature of the new man finds expression in your life. His nature is expressed in the fruit of the spirit. (Gal 5:22-23).
A person with the traits of the old man is not a good match for a marital partner. Have you put on the new man?
No one puts a new cloth on the old one because they won’t agree and it would make a mess of the new one.
Father, evacuate every nature of the old man in me in Jesus name.
I receive strength to put off the old man and all his works. I shall put on the new man, I shall no longer be confined to the nature of the old man but would be transformed into the likeness of the new man in Jesus name.
