For years I have wanted people to share with about stuff I read--now I have you. This is great. This morning I was rereading a book call Connecting by Dr. Kluane Spake and this passage really hit home.
"I remember the old days, when we had to put our armor on every morning. I began to wonder, "Well, when did I take it off?" And so it is with the "new man." We don't have to keep "putting on" that same part of the New Man every day like a dirty t-shirt. We just remind ourselves that it is already "PUT ON." The sin nature is crucified at the cross.
Paul told believers to "take off" the old man (stop being carnal). and "put on" the new. This is an exchange of perception. And, keep in mind that we continually recieve further (progressive) revelation that needs to be PUT ON" -- in order to be conformed to the image of His Son (Rom. 8:28-29).
We obtain the POWER (dunamis) of the Holy Spirit to bring us into dominion and personal WHOLENESS."
Another busy day today. Hope to have time on Friday to check all your sites and find out what’s happening in your lives. Today is Share, our local food pantry and then a Christmas Party at the nursing home where my husband’s mother is a resident. The evening looks like a Texan’s football game and Christmas cards. Life is good!
