Our Minds Need Renovation
The process of becoming more Christlike in our behavior involves, according to Ephesians 4, putting off the "old man" (old nature), as discussed in last week's message, and putting on the "new man" (new nature). But in between those two truths is what's probably the most overlooked step: Renewing the spirit of our minds. If our minds are not renewed to make our new behavior genuine then the result will be mere superficial Christianity. Get your mind right by first focusing on things above and THEN put on the new man.
