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

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
Although we live in a throw away culture where we throw away things when they are used or broken, God doesn’t view things this way. Pastor Tarik teaches on how Jesus restores Peter because God is a restoring God.
