Shedding Our Old Skin

In Colossians 3, Paul details things that were a part of our Pre-Jesus life.  He includes sexual deviance, anger, rage, malice, obscene language and lying.  In contrast to all of that, he tells us that we are to be living a brand new life that is continually learning more and more of what is right.  Like a snake sheds its skin, so we are to shed, slough off our old self and proceed into a wonderful future living a whole new life from what we had been living.
