Those who are raised up with Christ are to keep seeking the things above and set their minds on the things above…the very Presence of God.
We have died to self.
Our lives are hidden with Christ in God.
Christ is our life.
We will be revealed with Him glory.
Because of all this…
Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.
We are to consider our body as good as dead to sin.
Some are listed.
Notice that they amount to idolatry.
In other words, anything that we exalt above the Most High is idolatry.
Those who do such will be punished…the wrath of God.
For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience,
and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them.
We walked in these in the past, but not now.
Put them aside.
We consider these to be “big” evils.
Wait ’til the next verse…
For today, die to self/sin.
Live in the life that we have with Christ in God.
