Colossians 3, verses 5-9 I’ve titled this ‘The old man – die to self‘. 5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, 7 in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them. 8 But now...

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
“The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me,And His word was on my tongue.The God of Israel said,The Rock of Israel spoke to me:‘He who rules over men must be just,Ruling in the fear of God.And he shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises,A morning without clouds,Like the tender grass springing out of the earth,By clear shining after rain.’
