In Ephesians 4:17-24 where we see Paul declare, “off with the old, on with the new!” Paul is urging the church to allow the full effect of Jesus’ teaching and power to affect their entire lives. Because we are ‘in Christ,’ we have the responsibility, in the power of the Spirit, to take off the old lifestyle–the old way of being human–and to put on the new lifestyle. We are to become practically what we are positionally in Christ–‘the new man!’ In our new life in Christ, the destiny in which Adam was created will now come to fulfillment. We are created again after the likeness of God; His image, marred and broken by the fall, is restored. We reflect once again his character and glory!
