Colossians 2:20-2320Since you died with Christ to the basic principles of this world, why, as though you still belonged to it, do you submit to its rules: 21″Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? 22These are all destined to perish with use, because they are based on human commands and teachings. 23Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.

People should be able to see a difference between the way Christians and non-Christians live. Still, we should not expect instant maturity in new Christians. Christian growth is a lifelong process. Although we have a new nature, we donâ€™t automatically think all good thoughts and have all pure attitudes when we become new people in Christ. But if we keep listening to God, we will be changing all the time. As you look over the last year, what changes for the better have you seen in your thoughts and attitudes? Change may be slow, but your life will change significantly if you trust God to change you.
If you donâ€™t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you can at this moment confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God hath raised Him from the dead. With this action, you are saved! Be sure to read your bible, get connected to a fellowship of believers in and followers of Christ so that you may grow in knowledge of and in relationship with our Lord.
