Sage Saying Saturday…

A day late…

Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. (Colossians 3:5-11 ESV)

Put off the old self…be new, be in Christ. Mostly it feels like a daily dying to the list of things Paul mentioned. It’s not an once and done kind of thing. My depravity will regularly rear its ugly head and i have to put those things away, but i don’t do it alone because Christ is all, and in all. i am being renewed because of Christ, i won’t chase after what is earthly in me. Today that’s good enough for me.
