We all enjoy new, fresh starts. However, with anything new comes the temptation to back to the old habits, routine, lifestyle.
When it comes to our new life from Jesus, going back to the old could be disastrous. In Colossians 3, Paul discusses how to avoid slipping back into the old life. If we give God permission to be in control and permission to let His Words change us, then we can fully enjoy the new life He has given us. Without giving God permission to work in our lives, we will never fully know how God could have used our lives.
