He is the head over every power and authority. In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ, having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. Colossians 2:10-12
I feel this speaks to part of a dream I had. I was wearing a suit, a jacket and slacks in royal blue. Some other clothing was over the clothes like a gown. I “strategically” removed my suit while still having the over-garment on. In human terms – not easy at all!
Our redemption does not happen by what we do…the work has been done by Jesus on the cross already…not by human hands. It really is not about us…but about HIM!
His grace is sufficient!
