A New Nature

Colossians 3:10 Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.
The older I get the more I am learning that it's important to "dress the part" when living for Christ. There is a NEW NATURE that must be put on every day. When we asked Christ to be Lord of our lives, the bible says that old things passed away and all things became new. My language, my thoughts, my plans, my desires and my nature. The very core of who I am changed on that day I was saved.
For most of my school years, and especially in college, I got my clothes from the hand me downs of others. I did not have money to buy clothes so I would wear the throw aways of others. My dorm buddies would be changing their style to stay current and I would take their old stuff. I wasn't in fashion but praise God I wasn't naked! I remember how great it felt when I was able to have something new! At Christmas if I got some new jeans or shirts I was so excited. It was new!
Alot of people today are living their life in other peoples clothes when the Lord wants to give them a new outfit. You cannot be all that you were created to be by trying to be like someone else. Your life can change in an instant by simply asking Jesus Christ to live in your heart. He will help you stop "putting on"(being fake) and start to put on your new nature. God chose you to be holy...He set up your life in advance so that you could have great success and be satisfied in every area. Today you can belong, be loved and be needed! Don't you care what you wear? Tomorrow I show you what this new outfit consists of!
