Tag Archives: Putting on The New Man

The Old Man Crucified ~

Is the old man crucified,
is he nailed to the tree
have you to your past sins
finally been set him free?

For when the old man,
you finally crucify . . .
your old sinful nature
you’ll not want to satisfy.

Is your old man dead,
did he die to self and pride
have you now a heart
where Jesus can abide?

For when the new man,
you put on and wear
to the Holy Spirit wooing
you will be aware.

Is the old man truly,
in your life crucified
or has the new man . . .
been pushed aside?

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 2:20

I am crucified with Christ:
nevertheless I live;
yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:
and the life which I now live
in the flesh I live by the faith
of the Son of God, who loved me,
and gave himself for me.

Romans 6:6

Knowing this, that our old man
is crucified with him, that the
body of sin might be destroyed,
that henceforth we should
not serve sin.

Embracing The New ~

Embracing the new,
getting rid of the old
is freeing and liberating
makes us for Jesus bold.

It’s finally saying goodbye,
to former desires
and letting the Holy Spirit
ignite into our souls a fire.

Taking off the weight,
of spiritual depression
allows Jesus to make
a lasting impression.

It’s doing away with self,
and letting Jesus in
it’s going out everyday
not falling back into sin.

Doing away with the old,
for what is new . . .
is letting Jesus become
a part of you!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold,
all things are become new.

This Is My Cross ~

This is my cross,
it is mine to carry
and it is up to me
the old man to bury.

This is my death,
this is my demise
so that a new life
in Christ can arise.

This is my cross,
this is me dying
this is me on myself
no longer relying.

This is me denying,
all my own plans
this is me leaving
all in God’s hands.

This is my cross,
this is my funeral
this is me becoming  . . .
for Jesus usable!

~~~~~~~~

Mark 8:34

“And when he had called the people
unto him with his disciples also,
he said unto them, Whosoever will
come after me, let him deny himself,
and take up his cross, and follow me.”

Old Things Gone ~

Old things gone,
no more desire
for worldly wealth
to acquire.

No more need,
to seek greed out
satisfied now
to do without.

Old things dead,
no more pleasure
worldly practices
no longer treasure.

No more wants,
indulgences filled
to old thoughts
no longer thrilled.

Old things gone,
all things new
self removed . . .
Christ now in you!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation.
The old has passed away;
behold, the new has come.

With Their Lips Only ~

Some say they love Jesus,
but, it’s with their lips only
for their actions do not match
what their words say so boldly.

They tell you they believe,
but, it’s not with their heart
for deep inside of them
sin still plays an ugly part.

Their faith and trust in God,
they will openly declare
but, with the things of this world
they still have a love affair.

Their mouths sing the songs,
of the joy of their salvation
but, to them they hold no real
life-changing revelations.

Some say they love Jesus,
their lips mouth their devotion
but, their hearts are only . . .
going through the motion!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 29:13

“Wherefore the Lord said,
Forasmuch as this people
draw near me with their mouth,
and with their lips do honour me,
but have removed their heart far
from me, and their fear toward
me is taught by the precept of men:”

Off With the Old, On With the New ~

Old for the New ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo Creation Swap

The Old Man
no longer lives in me
it is now the New Man
that I choose to be.

For I have put-off,
the things I use to do
I have put-on these things
Lord . . . just for You . . .

Irritation for meekness,
dishonesty for truthfulness
quarrelsome for harmony
bitterness for forgiveness.

Bragging for humbleness,
idleness for service
cheating for honesty
emptiness for purpose.

Blaming for responsibility,
complacency for eagerness
complaining for thankfulness
depression for happiness.

Annoyance for contentment,
laziness for keenness
defiance for obedience
divisiveness for stillness.

Hatred for love,
resentful for delightful
greediness for gladness
drunkenness for self-control.

Shame for confession,
un-holiness for righteousness
sin for repentance
irresponsible for cautiousness.

Envious for satisfaction,
disbelief for trust
gossip for good reports
unfairness for being just.

Excess for restraint,
old ways for the new
following the world . . .
for following after You!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:22-24

“That ye put off concerning the former
conversation the old man, which is corrupt
according to the deceitful lusts;
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
And that ye put on the new man,
which after God is created
in righteousness and true holiness.”
