Colossians 3:5-11 “The Restoration Process”

The Restoration Process – Part 1 – Putting Off.

What difference does Christ make in Communities? Should Christ make a difference in our community? If so how much of a difference? Should it be subtle? Should it be radical? In Colossians Paul unpacks the idea of a community radically transformed under the influence of Christ’s Lordship. A Christ centred community is radically transformed as people constantly seek to suppress the desire they have for things that don’t belong to them and as they seek to put away any hostility they have against one another.

Colossians 3:5-11

Put to death therefore what is earthly in you:[b] sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming.[c] In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self[d] with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. 11 Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave,[e] free; but Christ is all, and in all.
