Pastor Dan preaches from Colossians 3:5-11, where we are told to lay aside the “old self” and put on the “new self”. We have a new nature with Christ living in us. This doesn’t happen overnight, however. We are in the process of being conformed to our true identity: the image of Christ.
Paul, imprisoned for his beliefs, is rejoicing for the Colossians and their faith. Paul teaches us why we should not be afraid of suffering, and we can use him as an example to give us courage to share the gospel though we may be rejected.
