“I feel like a new man!” We usually hear or make that kind of statement in relationship to a change in circumstances. Maybe after a good nap or a much-needed vacation. When we attempt to repair something and our efforts turn out well, we say something like “Good as new!” That’s because, in our minds, new is good. If we see an advertisement that states, “New and improved”, we take it for granted that whatever it is that is being sold is somehow better than it was. But why is it, that when the Scriptures tell us we are “new creations” and that we have the power to “walk in newness of life”, we don’t believe it? The New Testament has a lot to say about the old nature and the new nature. Paul, in particular, seems to be always talking about putting off the old and putting on the new. But for some reason, we have a difficult time believing it because we don’t always feel or act like a new man.
