New in Christ

When we met Jesus and decide to live our lives in Him, it can be a tricky business in some ways.  While we hear again and again in scripture that we are new in Christ, we also live out the reality of still living day to day with temptations and struggles.  How do we balance these two realities?  How do we find confidence in who we are in Christ?  Paul meets us in the midst of this struggle in Colossians 3 and provides the first steps on how to live new in Christ with confidence.
