How often we start with the rules! We spend our days trying to do the right thing, trying to obey all those lists of commands in the Bible because we know they’re the right thing to do. Then when we fail, we feel like failures, not worthy of God’s love and feeling like fakers. Paul reminds us to start with who we are, new creations, then move into taking off our old sinful clothes every time we find ourselves wearing them because they aren’t befitting of our new identity in Jesus.
Scripture: Ephesians 4:17-5:5
