In Colossians 3, Paul talks about being risen with Jesus and dead to this world. He says if we are dead to this world, then why do you even want to go back to sin. Knowing that God will judge the children of disobedience. Then Paul warns them about anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy and filthy communication. The things that come out of our heart. We are to put off the old man with his deeds. We are renewed in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. When it comes to sin, God doesn’t make any difference. For God is no respecter of persons. God says we are to love our neighbors as ourselves. This is the bond of perfection. And the peace of God will keep our hearts and minds. Paul goes on talking about how love will treat people, especially the family. Remember that Colossians in about correcting heresy. Which can creep in if we aren’t diligent about our faith. How to prevent this? Read the word of God, pray and do what the word says. It is in thought, word, and deed, this is how we have our being in Christ Jesus.
