“…that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts...“ Ephesians 4:22.
Bible talks about two natures: carnal and spiritual, old and new. All of us have both. Any Christian should start his journey with Christ by putting off his/her old nature. That includes rejecting old way of thinking, habits, way of speaking and behavior. Your attitude should also change. There has to come an understanding that the way you were was not good. Our lifestyles separated us from God. The first step to undo this (after you receive Jesus as your Savior) is to throw away things that are foreign in the kingdom of God.
We will talk about second step tomorrow.
