It’s Your Choice: Flithy Rags or Clean Ones

If you had not bought any new clothes for many years, and someone took you on a shopping spree.  They told you it’s your choice what you buy.  Would you continue to wear your old clothes or the new ones?

As Christians, we have to understand that we must daily surrender to Christ.  We have a daily choice to wear the old rags of sin or the new righteous rags of Christ.  When we choose Christ, our desires begin to change and we do not desire to have anything to do with the filthy, dirty rags of the old life, sin.  Our desire becomes the heart of God to become more like his Son, and He desires for us to put on clean, pure, righteous rags, the new life.  Read Colossians 3:8-10:

Colossians 3:8-10 states, But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.
What clothes will you wear?
