Commentary from Pastor Michael White:  

…put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and…put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. – Eph 4:22-24

God wants to refresh you! But you still have to let Him. God wants to move in your life! But you still have to ask Him. The Holy Spirit wants to change you from the inside out! But you still have to invite Him.

Life is lived in partnership with God. He does all the work; but you and I need to choose to participate in what He is doing. God made you new! But you still have to put off the old man (v 22), and put on the new man (v 24). It is God who does the renewing (v 23); but we must choose to accept His blessing.

Prayer:

Father, thank You that I get to live life in partnership with You. You are so big, and I am so small; but You choose to make me alive all the same. Thank You for Your mercy and Your grace, in Jesus’ name.
