Colossians, Chapter Three, Lesson One

PUTTING ASIDE SIN            Page 6

V.11 ** In this renewal, does the Lord have favorites among His children? If you are really spiritual, does He like you best?

No - "...there is no distinction between..." Greek and Jew (circumcised or uncircumcised)
cf. Ephesians 2:13-16

Barbarian - people who spoke an inarticulate or stammering speech.
Scythian - a nomadic, warlike people noted for their savagery.
Slave and Freeman - (a living tool vs. the tool owner) cf. Philemon 1:15-16

** How is all of this equality accomplished?

In and through our Lord Jesus Christ. Because He "...is all, and in all" the Father sees us all as one and the same. cf. Romans 2:11, Galatians 2:6, Ephesians 6:9


** What were the three reasons given to us by Paul that are to compel us to live our lives each day "Putting Aside Sin"?

1) We have been raised up with Christ.
2) We have died and our life is hidden with Christ in God. (We are eternally secure)
3) When Jesus Christ comes again in glory, we will be with Him!


** In verses five, eight and nine of this passage, Paul got very specific in listing sinful areas that we are to set aside. They were:

1) Immorality 2) Impurity 3) Passion 4) Evil desire 5) Greed 6) Anger 7) Wrath 8) Malice
9) Slander 10) Abusive speech and 11) Lying to one another.


** Do you find yourself caught up in anyone of these sinful patterns? Would you be willing to agree with Scripture, in that it is time to "put them all aside"?


** Father help us to live each day "Putting Aside Sin" for the sake of Jesus Christ and for Your glory!
