We all know the frustration of knowing what’s right—even wanting to do what’s right—but then doing the opposite. While it may look different for everyone, it’s a battle we all fight.
The problem is that because we’ve wrestled with these things for so long, we often find ways to compromise, settle, legitimize, and justify our actions. After all, what alternative do we have?
But Paul shockingly tells us that we should break one of the 10 Commandments. He writes, “Put to death…whatever belongs to your earthly nature.” (Col. 3:5) He says we’re supposed to kill the things that pull us away from the life God wants for us. No more acting right when the right people are around. No more dark closets and corners of our lives. No more acceptance of the destructive things in our lives that continue to linger.
Paul says we’re supposed to kill them. And that’s what we intend to do.
