A New Man

if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor , for we are members of one another.
Ephesians 4:21‭-‬25

The newness of life is in truth. Being born again, being sanctified and growing deeper is only executed in TRUTH.

Jesus Christ said “sanctify them by your truth, your truth is your word.” (John 17:17)

The word (λογος) is the written word and Christ himself. What was written came and continues to come to fruition, for the day of the Lord draws nigh.

I want to be sure that I am seeking the Truth. Only what is true and not some man’s idea of truth.

Looking back at the 16 years before I responded to Christ and comparing them to the last 2 1/2 years, there is a stark difference. But I want to avoid becoming an apostate and turning back to old ways.

The paths that are distractions are to the left and the right, and are beaten down, worn and familiar. I must focus on the Way home to Jesus. An unwavering hope in His grace.

I pray that who I am in Christ is revealed.
I’m trying to walk as a new man
I want You to show me who I am
In You when I forget that I’m Yours

I can remember when he left
It’s still pounding in my chest
The pain I felt when he said goodbye
All the nights I tried to call
Cause I needed a father’s love
To cheer me on, to lift me up, to be my guide
I try to find my worth
In things that didn’t work
My confidence was broken
I was hopeless
But God, You have made me new
You’ve restored my heart and
Turned these ashes into life
Oh God, You have pulled me through
And everything I was is gone
And washed away for good
I’m a new man in You
I’m trying to walk as a new man
I want You to show me who I am
In You when I forget that I’m Yours
Now I find my worth and it’s set in stone
And it’s done for good
Cause God, You have made me new
You’ve restored my heart and
Turned these ashes into life
Oh God, You have pulled me through
And everything I was is gone
And washed away for good
I’m a new man in You
Oh God, You have made me new
You’ve restored my heart and
Turned these ashes into life
Oh God, You have pulled me through
And everything I was is gone
And washed away for good
And everything I was is gone
And washed away for good
I’m a new man in You
