Colossians 3:1-10

NSB(i) 1 If you have been raised together with Christ, seek the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Think about the things that are above, not on the things that are upon the earth. 3 For you died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, will be made known, then you will also be made known with him in glory. 5 Make your members that are upon the earth dead with regard to fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness (greed), which is idolatry. 6 Because of such things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 You once walked in these when you lived in them. 8 Now you also put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech out of your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you got rid of the old self with its evil practices. 10 You put on the new self that is being renewed to a true knowledge (full discernment) according to the image of the one who created him.
