Colossians 3:1-11

Old self: our familiar, old dysfunctional ways of living. Paul was reminding the church that they don’t live that way anymore. God has removed that old way of being when they stepped into newness in Jesus. As they walked in relationship with Jesus, they learned to walk in new ways. They have a new self, a new way of thinking and responding to the world around them.

In Romans 12:2, Paul says, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” When we switch our old self with the new self through Jesus, we are able to know and live out the will of our Father in heaven. When we live in our new self, we start to understand through testing and proving Him over and over again, that this new way is good.

Are you living in the new self today? Are you allowing God to transform you fully, or are you still trusting in your old ways?
