Read: Colossians 3:1-10

Putting Off the Old, Putting on the New

As followers of Christ, we are called to set our minds on things above, seeking the Lord with all our hearts.

Developing holy habits helps us replace our old sinful nature with Christ-honoring actions. It’s like shedding worn-out clothes and donning new, clean garments. Our old ways of living no longer define us, for Christ has given us new life.

Let’s intentionally cultivate holy habits that encourage us to seek Christ daily. Through prayer, worship, and fellowship with other believers, we grow in our love for God and deepen our desire to follow His ways. As we continue in these holy habits, we’ll find that the desires of our hearts align more closely with God’s desires for us.

When faced with temptations and worldly influences, let’s remember the importance of putting off the old and embracing the new life Christ offers. It’s not an instant transformation, but as we continually cultivate holy habits, God’s grace will work in us, molding us into the image of His Son.
