1 If ye then be risen with Christ, 🔹seek those things which are above🔹, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 🔹Set your affection on things above🔹, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; ◼fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness◼, which is idolatry:
6 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
8 But now ye also put off all these; ◼anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication◼ out of your mouth.
9 ◼Lie not◼ one to another, seeing that ye have ◼put off the old man◼ with his deeds;
10 And have 🔹put on the new man🔹, which is 🔹renewed in knowledge🔹 after the image of him that created him:
11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of 🔹mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering🔹; 13 🔹Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another🔹, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on 🔹charity🔹, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the 🔹peace of God rule in your hearts🔹, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye 🔹thankful🔹. 16 Let the 🔹word of Christ dwell in you richly🔹 in all wisdom; 🔹teaching and admonishing one another🔹 in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, 🔹do all in the name of the Lord Jesus🔹, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. (Col 3)
