"Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us." Colossians 3:10, 11 NLT
The process of renewal (putting on your new nature) occurs as we become more like Christ. In order to become more like Him we have to know Him better. That knowledge will only grow as we spend more and more time with Him.
How are you spending your time?
Are you spending enough time with God to be renewed or simply refreshed?
Being renewed in Christ brings change in who you are because of whose you are.
Being refreshed means you simply feel better about your experience.
Renewal is more than feelings and experience, it's when true change occurs and we truly become more like Him.
It begins with the understanding that Christ is all that matters.
