2 Corinthians 5:17New King James Version (NKJV)
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Romans 6:6New King James Version (NKJV)
6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
Ephesians 4:22New King James Version (NKJV)
22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,
Ephesians 5:8New King James Version (NKJV)
Walk in Light
8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
No matter how your past was, you can translate from darkness by accepting Christ as our father. We have new birth through Jesus. When becoming a new nature, you no longer are what you have been. By having the nature of God there could be times where you used to see homeless people or people living rough and you shake your head and look the other way but after being in christendom you start feeling sorry fot them and feel like you should help them. Sometimes people feel down in the dumps and really upset but when believing in Christ, you become like royalty. With a new nature we no longer are unrighteous. The old nature brings corruption. Your old beliefs and actions from the past must be stopped to show we are true followers of Jesus Christ and we are teachable by God’s words. We must not be angry when we are in a new nature, that we have love and we forgive people. Our new nature asks for peace that we dwell with every man and every woman with a calm spirit. Your new nature should show you are a righteous and honest person who is also God fearing and law abiding person. When parents feed their children regurlarly, it is like we should feed our new nature. You don’t put a ragged suit on just like you don’t go back to your old ways. Don’t let anyone bring you to things that are unrighteous. You must show you are in Christendom. If you stand for Christ you must stand for him 100%. You can’t have one foot in Christendom and one step out of Christendom. God wants to use us for his wants for us. When we are saved Christ gives us the way, the truth and the life. Our old creation can not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 13:3-9New King James Version (NKJV)
3 Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. 6 But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. 8 But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
