Dead or Undead …

Frankenstein

When we are born again, does all of the stuff we left behind die?

Yes we are a new creation in Christ Jesus, but what about all of the memories that plague us from before?

You know … that acting out felt so good…. I got so high. … Oh, man, she was so fine!

Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

I once complained to a pastor that the old undead me, the carnal sinful me kept “Coming back like a zombie … he just refuses to die and leave me alone.”

The pastor smiled at me and said  — “Well, ya just gotta’ keep on killin’ him.  Jesus’ll help you.”

So, maybe the title of this piece should be … “Jesus, the Zombie Slayer!”
