"PUT ON THE NEW MAN"
When we are tempted to look back with regret upon the experiences of the past, condemning ourselves for work we have done badly or have left undone, we can find much benefit from considering the life of the Apostle Paul. This man certainly had much to repent of, for he had been zealous in persecuting Christians, even becoming a party to the stoning of Stephen. However, when the light of Christ, Truth, dawned upon his consciousness, he was completely changed. Acknowledging the great mission of Christ Jesus, he set about to be a Christian and became a new man, utterly repudiating his former convictions and actions.
It must have grieved him to think of the evil that he had done in his fanatic opposition to Christianity and its adherents. Yet he wasted no time in brooding, but straightway turned his great energy and ability to promulgating the faith which he had previously attacked.
Following Paul's example, we can be mindful of his words (Eph. 4:22–24), "Put off ... the old man, ... and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and ... put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness" and true holiness."
