Clothe yourself with the new person (Eph. 4:24)

“Clothe yourself

With the new person,

Created

According to God,

In true righteousness

And holiness.”

καὶ ἐνδύσασθαι τὸν καινὸν ἄνθρωπον τὸν κατὰ Θεὸν κτισθέντα ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ καὶ ὁσιότητι τῆς ἀληθείας.

Paul said, “Clothe yourself (καὶ ἐνδύσασθαι) with the new person (τὸν καινὸν ἄνθρωπον), created (κτισθέντα) according to God (τὸν κατὰ Θεὸν) in true (τῆς ἀληθείας) righteousness (ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ) and holiness (καὶ ὁσιότητι).”  Paul reminded the Christians at Ephesus about how they had put on a new garment at baptism.  They should clothe themselves as a new person, not like the old corrupted person they once were.  This newly clothed and baptized person was created by God.  They had true righteousness and holiness as new followers of Jesus Christ in this community of believers at Ephesus.  Do you like to be right and holy?
