The EASTER Gift of Living a NEW LIFE
Bible Text: Colossians 3 | Preacher: Pastor Steve | Series: That They May Know…Christ
Worship The Lord
Colossians 3:1-4 Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory
We Live For CHRIST; Not For The WORLD
Putting OFF The Old Way Of Living
Colossians 3:5-8 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry… 8 But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth…
Putting ON The New Way Of Living
Colossians 3:12-14 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.

Obedience To The Lord Unlocks The Door To Real Change!
When we choose to stop running away from the Lord real change can take place in our lives
Colossians 3:14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
Love = by choice, with grace, commitment
Bond = unity, togetherness, relational glue
Perfection = wholeness, completeness, maturity
