Colossians 3:9-10 (NET)
Do not lie to one another since you have put off the old man with its practices and have been clothed with the new man that is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of the one who created it.
When Stacy received Christ as her Lord and Savior, it was a very spectacular encounter. She used to be deeply involved in the occult and was a ranking member of a powerful cult. She had an encounter with the Lord Jesus one day she tried to cast a spell to kill a pastor. This was how she came to know the Lord. Unlike many other new believers, she had great understanding of spiritual things and she understood that her spirit was now literally born again. She was so excited about what happened to her because she knew that it required very great spiritual power to cause this miracle of spiritual new birth. All the powers of the princes of the kingdom of darkness put together would not be sufficient to produce this kind of spiritual reality in one single soul.
It didn’t take her long to realize that even though she was a new man in her spirit, this new man had to be taught and trained in order for it to reach its full potential and destiny – the image of Christ.
Even Jesus had to grow in favor with God (Luke 2:52). He had to learn obedience even though He was God’s son (see Heb 5:8). There is always a learning process for those who will reach spiritual maturity.
Go into today knowing that your new inner man has to be trained in knowledge according to the image of Christ. You have to learn obedience as a son of God and grow in the knowledge of God. This learning comes when you engage the word of God.
Ask God to renew you and make you more like Christ daily.
