06/29 Colossians 2:11-12
When you came to Christ, you were “circumcised,” but not by a physical procedure. It was a spiritual procedure — the cutting away of your sinful nature. 12 For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to a new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.
Before we accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior we were dead in our trespasses and sin, at war with God and on our own. Life was dark when we surveyed the future. In Jesus we have inclusion in the Family of God, light to live our life and His presence to guide us moment by moment. We are now different for we are alive in Christ and part of the Family of God.
