What difference does becoming a Christian actually make? A massive difference according to the apostle Paul. And in today’s passage he explains what actually happens when a person comes to Christ. Along with a changing of our heart (attitudes) and the renewing of our mind (thinking), we begin living a whole new lifestyle. With the help of the Holy Spirit we “put off” the old sinful habits of the past and “put on” the new qualities of holiness. This is not always an easy process. Many of our old sins don’t simply fall off. We have to forcibly remove them. But over time, with God’s help, we begin to increasingly live a life that looks more and more like Jesus.
