When you came to Christ, you were “circumcised,” but not by a physical procedure. It was a spiritual procedure – it was the cutting away of your sinful nature.

You were buried with Christ… and with him you were raised to a new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.

You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away.

Then God made you alive with Christ! Woohoo! ūüėÄ

He forgave all our sins. He canceled the record that contained the charges against us. He took it and destroyed it by nailing it to Christ’s cross. Can I hear an AMEN!?

In IN THIS WAY God disarmed the evil rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross of Christ.

hehehe. That rocks. I couldn’t have written it better myself. In fact, I didn’t write that. It’s Colossians 2:11-15!
