Ephesians #26

Ephesians #26

We are united with Christ; we should seek the things above (Col 3:1-17). Col 3:8 put off sin; Col 3:10 put on the new man. The old man needs putting off; we need to be renewed (Eph 4:22-24). Illustrated in Zec 3:1-7 and Isa 55:6 human sin and human good are filthy garments as God sees them (like we've waded through sewage). We have been transferred out of darkness; we are a new creature (1Co 15:22; Col 1:13). If we are wearing the clothes from the grave, no one can tell the difference (Eph 4:22). Every day we need: (1) the cleansing of confession; (2) the renewal of the Word; (3) daily rest in the promises; (4) a dependence on the Spirit of God; and (5) a preoccupation with Christ.
