Yesterday's Lesson

What does it mean to take off the old self and put on the new? That was the subject of yesterday's lesson, in case you were among those who missed it, for some reason. Paul talked about that in the latter part of the 4th chapter of his letter to the church at Ephesus.

Here's the bottom line: the old self is radically depraved, unable to see or understand or please God. Through a miracle borne by God himself, the Christian's eyes are opened, his understanding is enlightened, and his desires change. That change is so radical, so miracoulous, that it can only be described as becoming a completely different person. The new self might look like the old self, but it's heart and it's mind and it actions are very different.

Any questions about Sunday? Anything that stuck with you or went unanswered for you? Please feel free to ask your questions here.

I hope you're having a great Memorial Day. I got a rare day off, and we've enjoyed it thouroughly.
