Focus On The Inner Man

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day” 2 Corinthians 4:16 Do you ever worry that you may be losing heart as a Christian, living the Christian life in this present world? If so, then here is your blessed remedy, a gift from God to you. It is this - your “inner man is being renewed day by day.” Losing heart, according to the wisdom in this Scripture, is related to the “decaying” nature of all things in the outer world where our “outer man” lives. Yes, it is true, in this world, we are aging, as are all things, and there is a pronounced state of decay, morally and spiritually

Serving In Newness Of The Spirit

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “But now we have been released from the law, having died to that by which we were bound, so that we serve in newness of the Spirit and not in oldness of the letter” Romans 7:6 Yesterday we saw, in reference to our being in a New Covenant, that “the letter kills, but the Sprit gives life” (2 Corinthians 3:6). Today, in this verse from his letter to the church at Rome, Paul wrote “that we serve in newness of the Spirit and not in oldness of the letter.” Bless our Lord, Jesus has set us free from sin and death into a new life, where we are a new creation, in a New Covenant, drinking the new wine of the kingdom, and serving our Lord “in newness of the Sp

The Difference In Our Newness Is The New Covenant Spirit Of God

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Our adequacy is from God, who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life” 2 Corinthians 3:5-6 This verse of Scripture tells us that, as true Christians, we are in a “new covenant” which is “of the Spirit” and that “the Spirit gives life.” Therefore, by contrast, we also see that the old covenant is “of the letter” and “the letter kills.” So, is it important for us to identify and live in the New Covenant? The difference is literally between spiritual life or death. The New Covenant is Christ Himself, God’s only begotten Son, Who is now our indwelling Lor

A New Creation In & By A New Covenant

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Our adequacy is from God, who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life” 2 Corinthians 3:5-6 The only way you and I are able to become the blessed “new creature” that the apostle Paul wrote of in 2 Corinthians 5:17, is through the “new covenant” that Paul first wrote of in 2 Corinthians 3:6. Because of “the new covenant in My blood,” that our Savior spoke of in Luke 22:20, you and I are most wonderfully blessed to be new creations under His New Covenant. It is also as Jesus said when He spoke, “new wine must be put into fresh wineskins” (Luke 5:38). When

Renewed And Transformed From Glory To Glory

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” Romans 12:2 Beloved child of God, let us thank our Lord profusely for the continuous transformation He offers us in Jesus Christ. If we live with our awareness squarely in and of this world, then we will inevitably become conformed to this world. If we live with our awareness squarely in and of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who abides and dwells within us, then we will inevitably become transformed towards our Lord, even as we “are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:18). Walking in this world can on

Why Be Conformed When You Could Be Transformed?

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” Romans 12:2 So, today, would we rather be “conformed to this world” or “transformed by the renewing of” our minds? I believe we would all rather be transformed. I think that, to a great degree, if we do not joyfully seek after transformation, then we will by default fall into conformity with this world. This means that the world will be influencing and governing our thinking and our feelings throughout our day. There is a better way! Let us be “transformed,” not “conformed.” Let us be “transformed by the renewing of” our minds, in Jesus Christ, as we put on our new s

It’s Already Done

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth” Ephesians 4:23-24 Putting on your new self does not require some type of herculean strength. Truly, putting on your new self is like accepting and putting on the beautiful robe of “righteousness and holiness of the truth” that God has created for you in Jesus Christ. Your “new self” has already “been created.” And this is not a one-size-fits-all situation. Your new self has been tailor made for you by God, just as your original self was wondrously and uniquely created. Your “new self” is a perfect

Be Renewed

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth” Ephesians 4:23-24 Beloved child of God, there are a lot of ways that we might “be” today, based upon our circumstances and feelings, but God’s word encourages us to “Be renewed.” Be renewed now, in the present moment. Be renewed as your state of being. Be renewed because, in Jesus Christ, you are a “new creature.” When we step into our renewal in Christ and put on our “new self,”that’s when we discover that our new self is our true self. Amen. This world can be so hard, cold, and filled with tribul

Two New Year’s Resolutions

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth” Ephesians 4:23-24 Bless your Lord o child of God! Here are two wonderful new year’s resolutions for you, straight from the Holy Spirit through the apostle Paul to you. First, “Be renewed in the spirit of your mind.” Amen. Yes it’s a blessing just to know that, as a beloved child of God, that we even have a “spirit of your mind.” Before we came to know Christ our Lord, all we had was an old mind, soaked in the sin of this world and our flesh. But now, praise God, we are a new creation (2 Corinthians

Behold Your New Year

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come” 2 Corinthians 5:17 A happy, blessed, and anointed in Christ our Lord new year to you! I have a great suggestion for a new year’s resolution for you. This year, beginning today, determine to “behold” who you are in Christ (“a new creature”) and what you have in Christ (“new things”). Do you see that Paul inserted the word “behold” exactly between “the old things passed away” on the one hand and “new things have come” on the other hand? So, what did Paul urge us to behold? The old things? No, of course not. He wrote “behold, new things ha

True Renewal Is In True Knowledge

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him” Colossians 3:10 The specific “true knowledge” that we are to be “renewed to,” as true Christians, is none other then the “true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Coalescence 2: 2-3). “Christ Himself” is our “true knowledge” and our true renewal. Your “new self” receives renewal from God into His “true knowledge” which is “Christ Himself.” Yes, keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, for it is in Him, Himself, that “are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge
