Today, we bring you Renewed.
Renewed is my absolute favorite one from this collection and for many reasons. One, I love the fit of this new racerback tank. It's long and flowy and not as low cut as last year's racerback tank. So it works to wear to the gym, home with the kids, and out and about with the ladies. Two, it has that same super soft comfy material. You know, the one you melt into and snuggle up with... except this is a tank, you don't snuggle in tanks. But you will leave the feel. Three, I LOVE this color and pairing it with my jackets or sweaters. And lastly and most importantly, the power behind this verse.
"And to be renewed in the Spirit of your Minds,"
But let’s extend the passage.
But that is not the way you learned Christ!- assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. - Eph. 4:20-24
The NLT translates to throw off your old self. Like throwing your dirty clothes away. You see when you make the decision to follow Jesus, a change happens. Jesus simply isn’t added into your life, he becomes your new life. There is a change in conduct, mind, a way of thinking. There is quite simply a break with the past and we now our renewed with Jesus. Living our new life with him. We go from knowing about Jesus to a life with Jesus.
From the time we say yes to Jesus we are made NEW; we are a new creation. But it’s also a process. An everyday process. It’s a daily conscious commitment. But we have a helper in this commitment to follow Jesus. When you say yes to Jesus, the Holy Spirit enters into your life and He now guides you in the ways to be like God - truly righteous and holy.
We pray as you wear this tank that you are reminded that you are renewed in Jesus, living in full light.
