Cinderella is getting ready for the ball. But she spent all day scrubbing and sweeping; she’s a mess! She’s not going to go to the ball like that, is she? Of course not! Her fairy godmother waves her wand and gives her a whole new outfit. As Christ-followers, we’ve been washed clean by the blood of Christ, but too often we revert back to our old ways. Cinderella wouldn’t wear her pretty gown the next day and resume her old way of life, cleaning and washing; those are the things that made her messy in the first place. Too often we remember ourselves in the dirt and think that’s all we’re fit for. Not true! We’ve been given new clothes to wear: His righteousness instead of our sinfulness. He gave us new clothes; now it’s time to ask God to give us a new perspective, to remember that we are His precious children wearing new clothes.
Ephesians 4:22-24 NIV
You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
