Ephesians 4:24 (AMP) And put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, in true righteousness and holiness.
Before a person can go to space, he has to put off his regular clothes and put on a space suit. No responsible person will take you to space without you putting on a space suit because your body in regular clothes will not survive the conditions of space.
God is our responsible father. He wants us to partake in His divine nature and glory. As a result of Jesus’ sacrifice, He has given us this freely. And we have received the righteousness of God in our spirits. It is only the nature of God that can withstand and express the glory of God. The sinful nature can never express God’s glory, it is too weak to transmit such glory.
When a Christian puts off the old nature of sin and puts on his new righteous nature, his life will now be able to express God’s love, righteousness, glory, wisdom, power, might, etc.
The new righteous nature is the one that can give expression to the light and glory of God within us. It is walking in this nature that lets our light shine before men and bring glory to our Father in heaven (see Mat 5:16).
Go into today knowing that God has given you the power to strip off the old nature and put on His divine nature.
Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you to do this.
