A study in the book of Colossians.
In Colossians, the Apostle Paul paints a picture of the life change that occurs when people begin to follow Jesus. He says if you are following Jesus then you’ve got to get rid of some things in your life that are dragging you down so you can put on the new self. To become a new person. In other words, Paul says, out with the old, in with the new.
Who would like to become someone new? Have you said to yourself, “I don’t like who I am right now, I want to be different. I want to be a new person.” The Bible talks about how we can be a new creation.
But the question is: how?
Probably most of us want to be made new in one way or another. But how do you become a new creation? How do you take off the old self, and step into a new self. Where do you even start?
It all starts with the grace of God. When we begin to understand how gracious God is to us, we can begin to put on The New Self.
