What Are You Wearing?

Ephesians 4:24 says, “Clothe yourself with this new nature.” Ok, what is a ‘new nature’ and what store carries this clothing line?! Well, Paul isn’t referring to clothes you wear rather the contrast to the “old self,” and the result of being transformed by Christ, is to “put on the new self.” Billy Graham said, “In Texas they tell a story about a man who used to hitch his horse every morning in front of the saloon. One morning the saloonkeeper came out and found that the horse was hitched in front of the Methodist church. He saw the man walking down the street and called out, “Say, why is your horse hitched in front of the Methodist church this morning?” The man turned around and said, “Well, last night I was converted in the revival meeting, and I’ve changed hitching posts.” That’s what it means to be born again. That’s what it means to be converted. It means that you changed hitching posts.” May we live in such a way that all people will know that we are bound in the freedom of God’s love in Christ!
