And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:23-24).
The Amplified version of our opening scripture says,
“And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude], And put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:23-24). As one who’s born again, you have a new life and a new nature; it’s the life and nature of God. You were recreated in righteousness and true holiness, to express the will and nature of the Father; the power has been deposited in your spirit.
Your spirit was recreated in the likeness of God. In other words, you were created to be like Him, and to function like Him; it’s thus possible for you to express His will and nature, His life and divine attributes that are in your spirit, to your world.
In every matter, in every place, at every event, give vent to His righteousness. In anything that you’re involved in, give expression to the will and nature of the Father; bear testimony by your life, actions and words, to the character of God! Express God everywhere you go.
You’re His expression and extension to your world; Hallelujah! So, manifest His glory. Express His virtues and perfections. This has always been the Father’s dream: to express Himself fully through you. He already blessed you and made you a blessing; now He seeks to bless the world
through you. Only through you can He show forth His goodness, grace, wisdom, and excellence to the world. The natural or unregenerate man can’t know who God is until they meet you.
Make it your life’s dream that through the Holy Spirit, everywhere you are, you’ll manifest Christ; you’ll manifest the God-life. Let Him laugh, smile, bless and touch the world through you.
I’ve been recreated in true righteousness and holiness; in the very image and likeness of God. I’m walking and living in my new nature, giving vent to the will and nature of the Father, establishing His righteousness in my world. His glory, excellence, wisdom and goodness are expressed through me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
