Colossians 3:10-14 Throughout our study of Colossians so far, Paul has given us a staunchly theological foundation for considering the worthiness and reasonableness of the Christian life. In ch. 3, he deals with the practical side of Christianity, the outward manner of living that we all naturally think of when we think about being a Christian. In vs. 5-9 he has given us a list of vices to avoid; now in vs. 10ff he gives us a list of graces to pursue.
Before we consider these graces specifically, we do well to look at little more deeply at the process and purpose of sanctification, as Paul describes it.
