Today's reading: Colossians 3:1-11
Living a Christ-centered life takes effort and intentionality. Paul makes this clear by his use of action verbs in his instructions in Colossians 3:1-11 (emphasis below mine).
- "Seek the things that are above" (vs. 1).
- "Set your minds on things that are above" (vs. 2).
- "Put to death therefore what is earthly" (vs. 5).
- "You must put them all away" (vs. 8).
Living rightly for Christ is not a once and done type of thing. It's something we choose to do and make a priority each and every day.
How are you "seeking the things above" and "putting away" earthly desires and temptations? How does your "new self" (your attitude, mindset, lifestyle, etc.) differ from the world around you and your old self before you received Christ as your Savior? Tami
