Paul's Advice To The Christians In Colossae COLOSSIANS 3:1-20
1 GET GOD'S PERSPECTIVE ON LIFE: Spend Time With God Every Day
Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honour at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory. [For DEVELOPING MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, go to WALKING WITH JESUS DAY BY DAY]
2 GET RID OF SIN IN YOUR LIFE: Confession & Repentance of Sin
So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you.
• Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, & evil desires
• Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshipping the things of this world....It's part of your old worldly life
• Get rid of anger, rage, malicious behaviour, slander, and dirty language.
• Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds.
