Set Free From Our Former Life

Ephesians 4:20-24 (ESV) But that is not the way you learned Christ!— 21 assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, 22 to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, 23 and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, 24 and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

What a great portion of scripture which highlights the Unleashed life, we as born again Christians now live. Once we were…you fill in the blank of your life before Christ and now we are…as verse 24 says, “created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness”. This means we have been made righteous before almighty God or another way to put it, we now have right standing in the presence of God. Pretty cool and all because of Jesus. Not only did Jesus Unleash us from our “former manner of life” as v22 says, but He set us on the right path pointed directly at God.  I don’t know about you, but when I recount my “Former Life”, I become extremely grateful for this “New Life” I now live. As you go about you day, consider these things and in your heart, be grateful for the many blessings the Unleashed life has now provided for you.
