An estimated 45 million Americans go on a diet each year, with more dieting today than ever before. More people attempt to take off the pounds, yet obesity is up from 34% to 42% in the USA according to CDC reports, which may cause death. What is the problem? Old eating habits are not replaced with new healthy eating habits to keep off weight. Spiritually, Paul exhorts believers to put off old ways that result in corruption by learning to put on Christ’s new way, which produces righteousness and holiness of truth for life.
