For many, Christianity is just about being told all the things we shouldn’t do—and at first glance that’s what Paul, in Colossians 3, seems to be doing. However, he’s actually talking about something deeper and more beautiful. He’s hoping we’ll see the symptoms and indicators of what happens when we live in our false self, which results in our settling for something less than God intends. Our new identity is our true self and ultimate calling. This week we talk about how to take off the false self and turn back to a loving union with Christ.
This week, reflect on how you may be living out of your false self. Acknowledge it with God, open yourself up, and allow him to help you remove these habits.
