Colossians 3 NIV
1Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
(Christ is often show in art media as a teacher, a friend of children or sinners. Sometimes on the cross crucified.
v1 he is seated at the right hand of God. REMEBER THIS!)
2Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
(There is a right way and a wrong way to do things)
3For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
4When Christ, who is your a life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
(Would you take the back seat, if the trip was worth it?)(glory)
(Does the Bible expect from you a certain morality?)
5Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. (Put to death, and greed is idolatry)
6Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. b
(Have you ever seen the wrath of God?)
7You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.
(There is to be a clear before and after!)
8But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
(Do you like it when someone treats you with "anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language?")
9Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices
10and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.
11Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.
12Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
13Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
14And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
