Jesus Christ is supreme. In him is fullness and we have been given fullness in him.
Some of the most significant aspects of his fullness are the effects of his death and resurrection in the lives of believers.
Because Christ died for us, our old, sinful nature died with him.
Because Christ was resurrected, we have new life in him - new resurrection life.
We read that we are to put to death sin like sexual immorality and greed and get rid of anger and lies like they are old, filthy clothes.
Paul commanded us to replace those old rags with new clothes.
Bear with each other, forgive each other, and, above all, Love each other
We are supposed to cover ourselves in this new life with these things within the body of believers.
But what about where you let your hair down? And where you work.
Home and work are, for better or worse, where we really act like ourselves.
These virtues of Christianity are hardest to show the people we live with every day.
But Paul drives these commands right
