Seeing that ye have put off the old man with his doings, and have put on the new man, that is being renewed unto knowledge after the image of him that created him. Colossians 3.9, 10. That ye put away, as concerning your former manner of life, the old man, . . . and that ye be renewed in the spirit of your mind. Ephesians 4.22, 23.

These passages underscore the fact that we should experience the perfectness of “the new man” in accordance with the life of God. “Put off,” “put away” and “put on” are actions of the will. Believers need to exercise their will to reject all the works of the old man and to choose all the freshness of the new man. The apex of Christian living is the life of the will. With the will set, they shall be renewed in mind and knowledge according to the image of God. The mind is the battleground in spiritual warfare. It is the stronghold of the Adamic life as well as being that part of our life which is most corrupted by sin. If the mind be renewed, the image of God can easily be restored.
