    Clothed in Christ
    Series: Colossians
    Last Sunday we explored our identity in Christ from Colossians 3:1-11 as people who have taken off our “old self” (sin nature) like filthy clothing nailed to the cross and put on our “new self” restoring God’s image within us.

    Changed Lives
    Series: Colossians
    After two chapters defining who Christ is (chapter 1) and who we are in Christ (chapter 2) the Letter to the Colossians casts vision for how God can change lives (chapter 3). Notice the contrasts between focusing on eternal things rather than pursuing earthly stuff, dying to ourselves so God's glory can shine through us, and shedding our self-centered ways of the past compared to growing more like Christ in the present. We'll explore how God can evoke these changes in our lives.
