How do you put off your “old self”?

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:22-24
            On your wedding day, you go from single to married.  Legally and relationally your relationship changes with your spouse.  However, now your mind has to change with that fact as you begin to incorporate your spouse into your life.
            When you get saved, you go from old self to new self.  You now have the Holy Spirit in your life and a new relationship (permanent) with God.  Now your mind has to accept that and live like that.  Putting off your old self means making choices that God wants you to choose and rejecting the choices your old way of life demanded.
