Paul uses various examples and gives us some real practical do’s and don’ts in our Christian living. So walk in a manner worthy of God’s call by putting off the old and in the Spirit’s power, putting on the new.
Put off the old, avoid becoming callous, avoid dishonesty and speaking the truth, avoid sinful anger, avoid unwholesome speech and all kinds of malice, and put on the new self pursuing righteousness, kindness, and a tender heart are one of the examples Paul says in this text.
This lifestyle can be treacherous and difficult at times, but He is worth it. Your old life will want to hang on forever and drag you with it but God is here and He wants to take care of you. He loves you!
