Bible Study Colossians 3:1-11
Colossians 3 (New King James Version)
Not Carnality but Christ
1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
(We are sitting at the right hand of God? You will appear with Him in glory? Where is our identity? We are in Christ and he is in us.)
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.
(We have a responsibility as Christians. God hates sin-He loves you-you have power over sin. Are you victories over sin for His glory)
8 But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.
(Patience gentleness of grace what is God’s character? Exodus 34:5-7
Whole armor of God- Ephesians 6:10-18)
Watch how you react to people are you reflecting God, His character?
You are equipped to if you are a Christian.
