A New Self: Part 2

So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. Colossians 3:5 NLT

We are human and we have evil desires. Some people are greedy. Some people are immersed in sexual immorality and umpire thoughts. This is how sin gets a hold of us.

We are forgiven every time we ask, but why take advantage of that. God has set aside commandments for a reason. So we do not get lost in our sins. As for material things, they are there to aid our quality of life. We should not put anything above God.

Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming. You used to do these things when your life was still part of this world. Colossians 3:6-7 NLT

The wages of sin is death. You don’t literally die every time you send. Death in this case is a separation from God. When we were a part of the world, we lacked a conscience. When we were born again, we were changed. Why would anyone want to go back?
