If I'm dead...why do I still feel these old stirrings? In Colossians, and in recent broadcasts, we've established the fact that Christians are dead. Our "new life" was preceded by an ending of the old life. But since this is spiritual and involves some metaphor, maybe we think it's less real. Certainly some of us have a hard time wrapping our minds around what has actually taken place for us, and to us, and what (if anything) needs to by done by us. The Bible gives us several pictures to help us understand this mystery. We're in Colossians 2, talking about all the "commandments and teachings of men" that no longer apply to us. Because we actually have "died with Christ."
