The New Man…

“Until one hates his old dress he cannot desire a new one. How will we become “a new creation in Christ”, “a new man”, “sons of light” if we don’t hate our former sinful soul which has in its slavery to the body become more flesh than spirit? The old man is in total fear of God. There is the beginning and its end. In the new man fear is the beginning but love is the end. Death for the love of Christ is a guarantee of eternal life.”
