23. and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,

25. Therefore, putting away lying, [“Let] each one [of you] speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another.

27. nor give place to the devil.

The instruction to put off the old man was stressed in our reading last Saturday. Today, another instruction to put on the new man is given to believers. If there is a “putting off”, then there must be a “putting on” for life abhors a vacuum. What then shall we put on? It is the new man created in God’s likeness of righteousness and holiness.

In putting on the new man, we must do the following: 1. Stop lying and speak the truth to one another. It is very clear that lying destroys trust and breaks down relationships (v.25) 2. Control our anger by dealing with it immediately.

It should not be bottled up to degenerate into bitterness. Offences must come among Christians but we should handle them promptly (v. 26); 3. Refuse to give the devil any opportunity to operate. His mission remains to steal, kill and destroy (v.27).

The characteristics of the new man are obvious: Love, goodness, kindness, gentleness, self-control, faithfulness, etc., and cannot be hidden. These days, we see people who profess Christ but express the old man. This is unfortunate and an error. Let people around you see the new man you are putting on and glorify God.

PRAYER: O! Lord, create a yearning in me to always put on the new man for your glory so that I can profess and express Christ to others. Amen.
