We all like to get new clothes, but do they change who we are? Do they make us cooler, make us smarter, make us wiser? The answer is no: they just cover us up, we are the same inside. The new self that Paul is talking about, is a new life in Christ. This life transforms us from the inside out. It turns us from our old deceitful life, to a life in the image of God. A life that, “has been created in righteousness and holiness of the Truth.”
