|2 Corinthians 4:16|
16 For this reason we do not lose heart; for though our outward man is perishing, the inward man is renewed day by day.
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.
19 So to know the love of Christ, which exceeds all knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, [From the Word of the Lord within: "Hope releases the power of God to change you." What hope? The true hope: the hope to become pure and sin free, to be translated into the kingdom while still on earth, and to enter union with Christ and the Father.]
14 So that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the deceptions and cunning craftiness of men, by which they lie in wait to deceive.
15 But speaking the truth in love, we may grow up into him in all things, who is the head, even Christ.
22 Strip yourselves of your former nature that controlled your conduct, which corrupts itself through lusts and desires that spring from delusion;
23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
|Colossians 3:10 |
10 And have [purposed to] put on the new man, who is renewed in knowledge after the image of him who created him, [To put on the new man is to have put off the old man with the body of sins and be renewed into the spiritual image of God, which man lost when Adam fell in disobedience to God. From the Word of the Lord within: "You are raised to a new life, not just an imitation; He is one with us and ever-present."]
