Dirt

Knowing Jesus: "Living New"

Randy Christian

Colossians 3:1-17
When we change, it is more than just our behavior.  Our motivation changes as well.  We shift from pleasing ourselves or someone important to us, to doing what we do to be faithful to the Lord.  Decisions are made on a new basis—not just what we want, but what pleases Him.  The more we Know Him, the more our lives are lived for Him.

Are you willing to get your hands dirty? The “correct” answer to that question is obvious—but it isn’t always true. Whether we’re willing to get dirty depends on how we get there, what the “dirt” is, who has it. The question is, how dirty does Jesus want us to get, and is there a place where we say “no more dirt”?
