you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,
Colossians 3:9-10

"Look to Abraham your father, And to Sarah who bore you; For I called him alone, And blessed him and increased him."
Isaiah 51:2

I am a new man in Christ
I am a son of the Patriarch Abraham

God is Making Me More


1. Liable to account; accountable; answerable; as for a debt. We are all responsible for the talents entrusted to us by our Creator.
2. Able to discharge an obligation; or having estate adequate to the payment of a debt. In taking bail, the officer will ascertain whether the proposed surely is a responsible man.

Webster's, 1st ed., 1828


"Pure religion" is keeping myself unspotted from the world (James 1:27).

I know what God expects from me, and I do it. I know what others expect from me, and I do it, because God expects it of me.

God has predestined both the ends and the means. I am the means.

I do not wait for my old man to die; I actively put him to death.
I will not wait for the world to save itself.
I will not stand by and accept evil.
I give my life as Christ gave His.
I expend energy to extend His Kingdom.
Pure religion is no spectator sport.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55
