The new man
Text: Colossians 3: 1-10
The new man is the new provision made by God after the old man was contaminated (defiled). Romans 5:12- “therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world and death through sin, thus death spread to all men because all sinned”.
All men have these characteristics(old man) in them; hence there is a need for transformation from this state, nature, thoughts, being, and way of life into the new provision of God; which is the New Man.
The new man is the nature of Christ, it is Christ Himself we are expected to put on. This is the true virtue of Christianity.
The nature of Christ is holiness and godliness should therefore be reflected in us.
Everyone born into the world has the old man, (I.e carnality) by default. Hence, there is a need to put off the old nature and put on the new man renewed according to the knowledge of Christ in holiness and godliness
Food for thought
You cannot have the new you until you put the new man
