Ephesians 4:31-32 ” Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
The Scene: A born-again child of God walking up a rise, representing his coming up higher in the Spirit (maturity). As that person matures in his spiritual walk, he is dropping off the boxes, symbolic of sins.
We are called to get rid of the burdens from our mortal bodies through repentance and becoming born-again through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:4 (AMP) “For while we are still in this tent, we groan under the burden and sigh deeply–weighed down, depressed, oppressed, not that we want to put off the body (the clothing of the Spirit) but rather that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal (our dying body) may be swallowed up by life (after the resurrection).”
We now desire to be more Christ-like, casting off our burdens from the “old person” of sin.
2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
