“… be renewed in the spirit of your minds, put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:23-24
"Putting off our old self and putting on the new" doesn't begin when we are the 'new' - it is a journey - a daily partnering with God, one in which we begin to know His voice and be changed by His Word and grace from the inside out. His Spirit is at work within us. Behold Him. Be held by Him. Become.
