Did you know that Jesus is your life? It makes perfect sense. He is our life now and He sustains our life for eternity! Paul said this to the Christians in Colosse to encourage them, and to warn them against sin. So today, I say this to you, Jesus is your life! Make sure you guard your life against sin that so easily creeps in to destroy it. Jesus is your life, don’t subject Him to your folly. Listen to the Holy Spirit when He warns you against such, and take the outs that He gives you so that you don’t sin against Him. It’s much easier to take the wide path that the world travels, but it leads to destruction. It’s much harder to take the narrow path that fewer people travel; it has curves, and branches, and sometimes you need a machete or sword just to get through, but it will be worth it in the end because it leads to eternal life. Hang in there! There’s a clearing up ahead, and you can catch your breath there!
4 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
5 Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
6 On account of these the wrath of God is coming.
7 In these you too once walked, when you were living in them.
8 But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.
9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices
10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. Colossians 3:4-10
