if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. Ephesians 4:21-24 NASB
Lord, as a Christian, one called by You unto salvation and a new life; help me daily to lay aside my old self which is corrupted with sin and be renewed in the spirit of my mind, putting on the new self, Your likeness which is Your righteousness, holiness and truth.
In Jesus name, amen.
If you have heard Him and been taught in Him:
In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation-having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, Ephesians 1:13 NASB
Rid yourself of the old self:
But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth. Colossians 3:8 NASB. (See also: James 1:21, 1 Peter 2:1)
knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; Romans 6:6 NASB
Put on the new self:
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts. Romans 13:14 NASB
Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4 NASB
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.2 Corinthians 5:17 NASB
and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him-Colossians 3:10 NASB
