Because Satan will always bring accusations against us, Ephesians 6:11; 6:13. As believers, we must learn how to use our armour to fight our spiritual battles.

old way of life vs the newness of life

Old Way of Life vs. the Newness of Life (the battle begins!)

Being made brand new, we find ourselves in new territory and wanting a newness of life in Christ. For our old way of life no longer is pleasing to us. Now the true battle begins on the inside as we journey towards working out our salvation.

What is the Newness of Life?

The newness of life means living a sanctified life before God.

As we move away from our old way of thinking, doing and being, our flesh will be hostile against the righteous desires of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:16-17). Our flesh does not want to be sanctified. Therefore, remember, our battle is not against other people in and of itself. It is a battle of separating from sin as we move toward our future glorified body in Christ forever.

As children of God, Jesus Christ is our spring of eternal life (John 4:14). He is our bread of life, Who came down from heaven (John 6:35). Faith in Jesus Christ delivers us out of the darkness and into the Light…
