Dr. Parrott explains a challenging passage of Scripture, Colossians 3:1-11. Mark Twain quipped, “It is not the parts of the Bible I don’t understand that trouble me, it is the parts I do understand.” The passage Dr. Parrott helps us deal with is clear and easy to understand, but hard to work out in our lives.

These are grand words and we must be careful with them. Be careful with the word parish. It means death. It certainly looks like Cheryl has died. In Christ, we have a new set of eyes. In Christ, death is not a dead end street but an open door to a new life in God. Death is entrance into the presence of God, perfect and full. Death in Christ is hope for the day when the whole world will be made new in Jesus.

I remember a class in educational leadership that I took during my doctoral program. The class had a special meeting on a Saturday to accommodate a visiting professor, the president of a community college.

Years ago I heard a wonderful illustration of what it means to be “real.” Here goes: There are three types of Christians. First, there’s the TOP-OF-THE-PILE Christian. You have seen these folks. You ask them “How are you doing?” and away they go: “Top of the pile! Movin’ and groovin’ with Jesus. Growin’ and glowin’ in Him.” Really? All the time? You can’t be that way all the time, it is not realistic.
