Colossians 3:5-11 "Battle Plans for Killing Your Sin"

Two strategic fronts for killing old sin in light of our new identity in Christ:

  1. Concerning the "Frontline:" Ruthlessly mortify your old self (5-8)
    1. The command to mortify (5-6)
      1. Kill what is earthly (5a)
      2. Things that are earthly (5b)
      3. Why you must kill what is earthly (6)
    2. The contrast involved for believers in mortification (7-8)
      1. Believers' former lifestyle referenced (7)
      2. Believers' current mortification commanded (8)
  2. Concerning the "Homefront:" Relentlessly recall your new self (9-11)
    1. An introductory command (9a)
    2. A tremendous reminder (9b-11)
      1. You stripped off the old self (9b)
      2. You put on the new self (10-11)
