Can you put on something you are ashamed of? Can you hide something you have already put on? What are you wearing?
A lot of people are very conscious of how they look outwardly, how their clothes look, their face and all thus the essence of the mirror. All these self conscious attitude is a natural phenomenon common with all men.
But there is a consciousness that is not of outward self, rather a consciousness of spirit. Just as you are conscious of how you look outwardly you ought to be much more conscious of how you look inwardly because you see that inward man is actually the real you. Your outward man is not the real you, it’s only a casing for the real you.
The inward man has two kinds of wears: a) the old man b) the new man
For a long time we have put on the old man fashioned after ‘deceitful lusts’
(Ephesians 4:22-24) -“22that ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24and that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”
The brand of that wear called the “old man” is “deceitful lusts”. It’s high time to take off that old man because it smells, it’s outdated, it has no value and it is a lie, it is deceitful. It only makes one filthy and unworthy, and value-less.
Christ came to hand over to us the new man fashioned after righteousness leading to holiness. You can only see God when you wear that “new man” for scripture says “without holiness no man will see the Lord”. The brand of the ” new man” is “righteousness leading to holiness”
This wear called “new man” is so pure, so fashionable, so comfy, so attractive, how can you not afford to wear such an expensive, infact invaluable wear. There is no wear on earth, (name the latest designer’s wears) that can come close in superiority to this wear called “new man”, they can’t even be compared really.
Just as you can’t put a price on the blood of Christ so you can’t put a price on that wear called “new man” for Christ is the new man that we ought to wear on a daily basis. It simply means your life ought to give expression to the natures of Christ Jesus.
How can I get this wear called “new man”? All you need to do is accept Christ Jesus as your Lord and savior, surrendering all to him, asking him to cleanse and wash you in His blood and then going further to learn his ways through his Word. For his Word is that mirror that we need to check if our inward man is looking alright. (James 1:22-25)
When last did you check the mirror? It’s not too late to check again, just open those pages of the scriptures and make the necessary adjustments.
Wow! Now you look stunning! That mirror of the word is the perfect plug for your beauty!
