Putting On the New Man ~

You offered to me this new man,
 and asked me to put him on . . .
 You challenged me to grow in Him
to be willing to be Spirit drawn.
You told me my life was useless,
 and my heart was as dry as dust
 that my mind was full of darkness
 overflowing with the sin of lust.
You asked me to give to You,
 the worldly joys in my possession
 You told me that in return for them
 You'd give me Your pure perfection.
You made me open up my eyes,
 and see the uselessness in what I do
 showing me no matter how hard I try
 they're fruitless when done without You.
You revealed to me that all my pain,
 was from the emptiness deep inside
 and why this old and new man
 can't live peacefully side by side.
You asked me to make a choice,
 a dark heart for one full of light
 I chose to put on the righteous man
 and to give the old one a holy fight!
Ephesians 4:24
 King James Version
And that ye put on the new man,
 which after God is created in righteousness
 and true holiness.
