You must no longer walk as unbelievers do (v17). Putting off the old self (v22) means you stop looking to anything other than God for your deepest satisfaction. Put on the new self (v24) means to make God your ultimate object of worship because He is our most satisfying reality. Be renewed in the spirit of your minds (v23) means living for God’s Glory motivated by God’s love according to God’s Word. Pay attention to your uncontrollable or inconsolable emotions and you’ll discover hanging from the roots of them are your counterfeit gods (idols). Life change happens when you identify your idols & begin to look to Christ to meet the need that you are trying to have met through the idol.
