(This video is a short clip from a recent devotional mentoring series, What the Cross Means For You & Me. Press play to enjoy!)

God has provided us with the opportunity to trade in our old habits for our new nature in Christ. Because the old man is dead, we’re not responsible to keep killing it.

Instead, when we see an old habit or way of thinking arise in our life, we can agree with God and turn towards the new nature that He has for us to receive.

Every recognition of a habit or behavior rooted in the old nature is actually a cause for rejoicing, because it means we are about to receive a gift.

So to explore how you can trade in your old ways and receive what God has for you instead, watch the video above.
