That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;  And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;  And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Just as one would put off an old garment and put on a new one, our opening scripture admonishes us to put off the former conduct of our old corrupt nature, by which we lived before we encountered Christ. Such conducts as depicted in Ephesians 4:25 – 31, include lying, anger, stealing, corrupt communication, bitterness, wrath, clamour and every other work of darkness.
On the contrary however, the scripture admonishes us to put on the nature of “the new man”, which is the nature of Christ. This nature pursues after God in righteousness and holiness, manifesting in honesty, kindness, tenderheartedness, forgiveness and every other work of light, as seen in Ephesians 4:32 and Romans 13:13. Therefore, any man who puts off the old and puts on the new, has put on Christ. And any man who has put on Christ, has put on the Armour of light, which readily provides the light and protection he would require on the battlefield.
So, assess yourself today – is there still any trace of the old man in you? If yes, then determine to do away with it immediately and completely, so that it doesn’t hinder the efficacy of your armour, or even completely deactivate it. Rather, let us strive by all means to put on and have on at all times the new man in Christ. Glory to God!
