THE TWO COATS

A friend of mine once saw a tramp and decided to help him. He noticed he was wearing a dirty old coat. It was ripped and fit only for the bin.

So my friend offered the tramp his coat. The tramp took it but to my friends surprise, instead of taking off the old coat and putting on the new, he just put the new coat straight on top of his old coat.

Sadly like that tramp too many Christians behave the same way: They want the new things of Christ but don’t want to let go of the old things of self and sin. When a person becomes a Christian, there is a putting on and a putting off.
