Put on the New Man (Colossians #50)

Put on the new man

Text: Colossians 3:5-11

Everyone has a past

  • Old things past away behold all things are become new
  • Such WERE some of you…
  • The old man dresses himself in these:
    • Anger
    • Wrath
    • Malice
    • Blasphemy
    • Filthy communication
    • Lying

Put off and put on

  • Ephesians 4:24-29
  • It’s not just put off. It’s put on. Christianity is not a bunch of rules and thou shalt not. But it is put on these other things.

Spiritual matters are not racial or class qualities (vss 10-11)

  • Spiritual truths are not racial truths. Mercy is not white, black, Chinese, Indian, etc. Kindness is not South African, Nigerian, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, etc.
