“Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.” (Ephesians 4: 23-24, New Living Translation)
We can start today with a fresh sense of ourselves and of our lives. We can take off the heavy old coat and put on what truly fits us and suits us. We can become today what we were made to be—righteous and holy.
This uprightness, wholeness, purity, is God’s own nature and He created us to show forth these divine qualities. Our identity isn’t housed in body. It isn’t expressed by a personality that has passed through years and accumulated fears. We were created to be like God, and this true selfhood is never lost, only at times lost sight of.
So, we can enthusiastically receive this invitation to be renewed, to be cleansed of all that is not truly us, not truly satisfying, of what feels incomplete or lacking. We can let the Spirit make us new.
This is not a human endeavor, a willful attempt to be nicer, happier, freer, better. It is a release to God and His Spirit, to that constantly active Love that is ready to remind us of who we are, to show us how to receive that worthiness and so to live as we were meant to live, to give as we were meant to give.
