1. Positive Change Colossians 3:5-17

The change: Kill the old man and his works (v. 5-9)

“Mortifying” (KJV) is “Killing to death” (NKJV)

The “members” (sinful activities) are part of the very being

  • “I walked some time” (v. 7)
  • “lived in them” (v. 7)

These things being put to death are similar to other references (Rom 6:6, 11, 14; Gal 2:20; 5:24)

The terminology used indicates a suddenness of the end. Put on the new man and his good works (vv. 10-17)

Something is needed to fill the void.

  • A new creature in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)
  • Born again (John 3:3-5; 1 Peter 1:23)
  • Like new babies (1 Peter 2:2)

Characterized by new levels of engagement and appreciation

  • Love (v. 14)
  • Grateful (v. 15)
  • Concern for others (vs. 13, 16)
  • Disposition (v. 17)

2. He who believes Born Again

Is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe, be condemned. Mark 16:16.

Christ is saying that mere intellectual assent is not enough.

There must be a union with him, a real change, like the vegetable to the pickle!

Now, if you tell people that I'm saying to be baptized is to be pickled, you'd be right.

Is that so.

It's not just a wash and clean, it's a time of permanent change.

3. You Can Change: Born Again

1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid. How can we who are dead to sin live any longer in it?

The new birth - - Romans 6:1-6

What is God doing in Christ

2 Corinthians 5:17-21

To accept salvation - whether by faith or physical rebirth - is becoming a born-again Christian. After accepting Jesus as your savior, you will follow his commandments and strive to live a holy life according to his example.

The command that comes after accepting Jesus as your savior is to surrender your life to him trusting in his sacrifice for your sins. This involves believing that Jesus is God incarnate on Earth and that he died for you while you were still a sinner. It also involves confessing your sins and asking God's redemption through Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross. After recognizing his need for salvation, Jesus commands his followers to preach the gospel and make disciples. Discipleship involves continuing to trust Christ as you apply what you learn spiritually to daily life.
