Colossians Chapter 3



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.

18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.

20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.

21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:

23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

Sabrina; What are you confused about? This Epistle like all Epistles is about how to understand and put in practice the grace of God given to us in the Glad Tidings of Jesus Christ; and how to perform from the heart without hypocrisy what is good and well pleasing to God, in a world set to defy and contradict Him. Line by line, line by line, precept upon precept, as we walk in the Light we grow.

 


A disciple's Colossians Chapter 3 comment on 4/02/2018, 10:23am...

"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men " How many thousands of times have we tried to do good only to be sadly disappointed by people's indifference, or taking it all the wrong way! We wonder why some just automatically assume evil or deceitful motives, and leave hardly any room for natural friendly relations but that is unfortunately what we often meet with from men saved and unsaved! But Jesus is never like that with any of us. He is truly "A Friend that sticks closer than a brother." And while we cannot help but want to please others and be loved and accepted we must rise above our natural feelings, and the things of this life to look solely unto Him who is always constant and faithful in His love and acceptance knowing that the things we do with the best intentions to men are all kept in good remembrance with Jesus and He never can forget or overlook the slightest efforts.
