Putting Off and Putting On

At our church here in Edinburgh, we just finished a sermon series going through the book of Colossians. I have always loved that book. There is so much packed into just a few chapters. In fact, when Taryn and I did our premarital counseling the first passage we studied with the couple doing our counseling was Colossians 3. There is this beautiful outward motion in the passage. It starts by looking at our reality ‘in Christ’ and then how that reality changes all of our relationships.

It is not that Complicated

Paul understands spiritual growth in the Christian life to be a struggle. It isn't easy. It isn't part of our natural make up. The point Paul makes is that growth in the Christian life only comes when we see Christ's strength work through our weakness.
