    New Life in Jesus

    After Jesus died and rose again, Paul believed in Jesus and followed Him. Paul and other Christians traveled around, telling others the gospel, the good news about Jesus. Paul wrote letters to churches that we can read in the Bible. One letter Paul wrote was to the church at Colossae (koh LAHS sih). In his letter, Paul told them how people who love and follow Jesus are supposed to live.

    “If Jesus is your Lord,” Paul wrote, “live for Him. Trust Him and be thankful.” Paul also told the people to be careful. Sometimes people might tell them things that sound good and right but are not true. Jesus came to set us free from the wrong way of living so we can live in a better way—His way!

    Paul wrote, “Think about things that will be important in heaven. When you trust in Jesus, you start living a new life. Turn away from anger. Do not try to hurt others. Stop telling lies and using mean words.”

    Paul said that God wants to make us more like Jesus. “God chose you, and He loves you very much,” Paul said. “Have compassion. Be kind and humble. Be gentle and patient. Forgive one another because God has forgiven you. Most of all, love one another. Let Jesus give you peace, and be thankful.”

    Paul told the Christians to remember what Jesus taught and obey Him. “Sing to God with thankfulness in your hearts,” Paul wrote. “Children, obey your parents because this pleases God. And do everything for Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father.”

    Christ Connection: When we trust in Jesus, God changes us to be like Him. Jesus wants us to turn away from our old way of living and live in a way that honors Him.
