our old personality

Put away our old personality which conforms to your former form of conduct and... put on the new personality which was created according to God's will. Ephesians 4:22,23

Before making a dedication to serve God Jehovah through baptism,many of us had to make significant changes so that our dedication/vow would be meaningful and acceptable to Him.

In other words, before saying YES as respect to our dedication/vow/baptism,to God, we had to say NO to un acceptable former way of life.

Certain feaures of our old personality that prospective servants of God (to be His Witness) must put away are condemned by God's words (laws)in the Bible.

What are they?

Paul enumerated some in his letter to the Corinthians saying,

"Neither fornicators nor idolaters, nor adulterers,nor men who sleep with men,nor thieves, nor greedy persons, nor drunkards,nor revilers,nor extortioners will inherit God's Kingdom."

He then added; Yet that is what some of you were.

Notice were not are.

1Cor 6;9-11

Bon weekend a tous!
