This passage, Colossians 3:5-17, is loaded! It is not ambiguous. It is a very clear description of “what I am to be” as a follower of Christ. Put it on! Being in Christ, we now have the power of God’s Spirit indwelling us with power — so that we are quite capable of not sinning. Genesis 4:7.
I will determine, every day, to be this… everywhere all the time. I am motivated to actually be this type of person because of who I am in Christ, and because God Himself has chosen me to be His representative here (2 Corinthians 5: verses 5-21), for as long as He sees fit to – until He calls me home.
