I believe that those of us who have been raised with Christ not only have to walk with Him each day, but during that walk need to do two things —
First, we need to seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Secondly we need to set our minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
When the day Jesus who is our life appears, we want to appear with Him in glory.
That will only happen when we put to death those earthly things that hold us down for those things are supposed to be part of our past, the things that hold us down. Our old nature and all of their practices and left us and we put on our new nature which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of our Creator.
So each day, each walk with Jesus should be the putting on, as if we are God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved — compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience. forgiving any complaint against another and above all these things putting on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
