Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. Colossians 3:5-7 NIV
When we become saved, we become alive in Christ. This pleases our Heavenly Father. Those things that we thought made us complete and our old ways are put behind us. We will all be judged according to our actions.
We put aside our earthly nature and exchange it for our Heavenly Nature. We no longer seek out evil desires. We seek righteousness and we realize that to put anything above God is idolatry.
God does not judge us for our past. Once we are forgiven, he forgets better than we do. We are to be Alive in Christ. When we become Alive in Christ, we are able to Live for God.
