As a Christian, the sufficiency of Christ reminds us that we are now a new creature in Christ (cf. 2 Cor. 5:17). The penalty and the power of sin no longer has dominion over our life. In Colossians 3:5-11, Paul gives us three reasons why we must lay aside the old way of life and live in the new.
1. Reason #1: The Results of Sin (vv. 5-6)
2. Reason #2: The Reminder of Sin (vv. 7-8)
3. Reason #3: The Renewal of Christ (vv. 9-11)
