Col. 3:9-10 Don't lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old evil nature and all its wicked deeds. In its place you have clothed yourselves with a brand new nature that is continually being renewed as you learn more and more about Christ, who created this new nature within you.

What have you taken off? What difference has the Gospel you profess to believe in made in your life? What don't you do that you did before? What attitudes do you have now that you didn't have before about life and people? The reality is that if nothing noticeable has changed in you, then what you believe with your head is not what you believe in your heart. When Jesus is in us, we no longer can live in sin or maintain sinful attitudes. He won't let us. His Spirit convicts us of sin and moves us to confess sin and change.

In the place of our old way of life, Jesus gives us a brand new life. It is a life built on the foundation of godliness. It is a life that never quits becoming more like God in character. It is a life that is never satisfied with what is, but is aware of the need for constant growth and change. When Jesus lives within us, we have a constant hunger and thirst for more of His life. We want who He is to be who we are.

Let the Lord renew your heart today by striving to learn more and more about Him in all His glory and honor as God within you. Keep learning what you can't do that you did before and what you can now do that you couldn't before. Learn all you can about this new life in you. The Lord wants you to enjoy it to the fullest and the more you learn from Him, the more you can enjoy the life He gives. He who hungers and thirsts after righteousness will not only be satisfied, he will feast on the riches of God's wondrous love and grace.
