A New Year, A New Well-Dressed You
Because you have been resurrected with Christ, there are changes in your life.
Change how you view sin and sinful habits.
"I Have Just 3 things to say to you!"
- I am going to Kill You
- I am Taking you off and throwing you away
- Get Honest - Stop lying about how you are doing doing and what you are doing
Change my view of who I am
Old Man - Life before Christ - depraved, sinful, wicked. Deserving of Hell
Use to walk this way
New Man — Saved, new nature, Holy Spirit lives within.
No longer a slave to sin.
Slave to righteousness
Image of God - Correspond to God - made to live Holy.
Correspond spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and personally
Gives me dignity, value, self-worth
Change my view of others
Inside the church
Outside the church
Changes the hub of my life
Christ is all in all
Changes my heart and attitudes (vs 12-15)
I am loved
Mercy - compassion
Longsuffering / Forbearing
Ties it all together
We can love because we have been loved.
Peace of God Rule
