As we continue to look at the out-workings of Christ's preeminence in us we continue to see how we were chosen of God, holy and beloved of Christ. We put on the new man by putting on the reality of who we are in Christ. We take on his characteristics as outlined in verses 12-17. Also included, 3/17/10, the Practical Living Insert. While not directly from Colossians, we look at key verses that illuminate the answers to he question, how do we accomplish the putting off of the old man or mortifying the flesh? How do we accomplish the putting on of this new man?
