The Nature of God’s Love
Scripture: Colossians 3:1-11 (NIV)
The first thing I want to point out is so beautiful and glorious that we could talk about it all day if we wanted to. That is, we, you and I are made new in Jesus. Think about that. Whoever we are, whoever we’ve been, whatever we look back at and cringe, Jesus, in his love and his sacrifice, has made us new! That could be enough, but there’s more!
In our new being, we are freed from bondage. That doesn’t mean that we don’t struggle with temptation, but it does mean that we can follow Jesus, making better decisions and learning from the bad ones. We are on a trajectory that leads us to the promise of peace and glory.
“Set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” (Col. 3:1 NIV)
