"The Christian life is one of constant growth and real change."

Humans want to change and grow, but we rarely have lasting success. Paul explains why change is so difficult, the mechanics of how humans can change, and where true change takes you. Jesus rescues us from sin and futility and empowers us to change deeply and daily to live more like him in our city.

Application Questions:

1. Why would Paul say that life apart from God is "futile" and meaningless? Have you experienced the futility of trying to make something besides God the center of your life?

2. Paul says that change involves your entire self, not just your actions. Are there parts of your life that are still unaffected by God? What would "putting off," "being renewed," and "putting on" look like in those areas?

3. What would have to change in your daily life for you to pursue being renewed in the spirit of your mind?
