The Apostle Paul says to the Church in Colossae that believers have been made alive in Christ. But what does it mean to be alive in Christ? Ultimately it means we are not to live like the walking dead for we have been given new life in Christ. Yet what this new life means and what it looks like to live it out isn’t always clear to us. However I think Paul’s message in Colossians 2:6-15 helps to make these points clear to us when rightly understood.
Our faith in Christ enables us to put to death our earthly nature, it enables us to forgive and to be remade in the image of our Creator. Colossians 3:1-17
