1.6. The Letters

1.6.1. Galatians 1:6-7

1.6.1.1. I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News but is not the Good News at all.

1.6.1.2. The Galatian problem - they were trying to live with a foot in both the old self and in the new self.

1.6.1.3. What difference is there in a new and old Christian? Galatians goes ahead a little later and explains what that looks like. 5:22-25

1.6.2. 1 Thess. 1:3

1.6.2.1. We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers. We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ

1.6.5. Colossians 3

1.6.5.1. 3:8-10

1.6.5.1.1. But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.

1.6.5.2. 3:12-14

1.6.5.2.1. Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

1.7. Proactive vs. Reactive

1.7.1. lie less vs. be honest

1.7.2. gossip less vs. speak truth

1.7.3. less angry vs. patience

1.7.4. sexually pure vs. less promiscuous

1.7.5. less bitter vs. forgiving

1.7.6. less sarcastic vs. sincere

1.8. Why is it that so many of us know what not to do but really struggle to know what it means to be a Christian?
