New Creation in Christ: Leaving the Old Ways for the New

Scripture: Colossians 3:1-14

When we come across difficult times, most of us probably have one or two coping strategies that we rely on to provide some semblance of reprieve when dealing with the stress. Whether we’ve learned constructive methods of coping or have to unlearn destructive ones, we fall back on these strategies to get the tiniest bit of relief. To our dismay, the source of our stress doesn’t simply solve itself, and we can find ourselves stuck in the cycle of stress-coping and temporary relief. But in Christ, there is a new way of living; it’s a call to freedom, to leave behind our old ways of coping, through a relationship with Christ. We can take solace in the knowledge that we are new creations in Christ, that we are already freed from bondage, and encouraged to pursue the new self made in Christ’s image.
