We are often pulled this-way and that-way by our own will or the will of others.

From the moment we trust in Jesus and begin to follow Him, the mandate of scripture is to become who you are. The way Paul approaches this “becoming who you are-ness” in Colossians 3 is by using a “put off” and “put on” paradigm. The word that best embodies this idea is repentance. Pastor Dave teaches on how the life of a follower of Jesus should be one of repentance in Col 3:5-15.
Colossians 3:5-15 | Taught on 05 Jun 2011 | 36:20
How does the follower of Jesus become more like Jesus? Rules never work for lasting change and following the deepest desires of our heart often ends in chaos. How does God transform us? In part 5 of our New Identity Series, Pastor Dave teaches on this topic through Col 3:1-4.

If we neglect to live out of the core truth that we are loved by God through Jesus, and that love is neither earned nor deserved, we will begin to reduce Christianity to self-improvement.

Colossians 3:1-4 | Taught on 22 May 2011 | 35:37
Is Christ your life? This is a question that either completely destroys you with conviction or fills you with pride. Neither approach is helpful. Paul doesn’t frame it as a question in Colossians 3, but as a fact. An indicative. A truth. The truest thing about the Christian. Now what does that mean? Pastor Dave teaches on the Christian’s new identity.
Colossians 3:1-4 | Taught on 15 May 2011 | 35:37
