Believers are to…
keep seeking the things above
set our minds on the things above
consider our bodies as dead to sin
Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices,
and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him—
a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.
Do not lie to one another.
We have laid aside the old self and all its evil practices
We have put on the new self.
The new self is being renewed to a true knowledge…the image of the Lord.
There is no distinction in this renewal.
People from every nation, tribe and tongue are called.
Called to Christ.
The all in all.
Being so called, then we should put on the new self constantly and die to the old self.
Then, press on in love.
