Passage: Colossians 3:1-11
Verse: Colossians 3:1 (NIV 2011)
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
To live as those made alive in Christ is to:
- Set your hearts on things above [v. 1]
- Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things [v. 2]
- Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature [v. 5] and rid yourselves of all such things [v. 8].
- Do not lie to each other… [v. 9a].
- Put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator [v. 10].
May the joy and peace found when in Christ be yours today.
