Colossians 3:5â€-â€¬10 – New Person
“Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.”
Colossians 3:5â€-â€¬10 ESV
When we become a follower of Christ we become a new person. We are to get rid of the things of this world. Our life should be a mirror of Jesus. It is hard for me shake loose of my old nature at times. When I am able to to turn from the things of this world and focus on the things of heaven there is such peace in knowing that Christ is in control.
