It's Time To Amputate
So far in the Colossian "Game Plan", we have heard Paul settle the FACTS about the Christian faith—who Christ is, what He did, and who we are in Him. And we've heard him urge us to reset our FOCUS—on heaven, not on the earth.
Now we come to the passage I've been dreading, because now begins the FIGHT. Colossians 3:5-11 begins with "put to death therefore what is earthly in you." You're not immune to this. And neither am I. This is the road to holiness. We have to amputate things out of our lives to make room for the better things.
Let's prepare to meet with God Sunday. Let's come humbly, with readiness to comply with His leading. Because Christ is our life. And compared with that, nothing else matters.
