Notes:

1 --“ Written to those who have passed into the spiritual realm, Christ is your Lord. We are not seeking the new life; rather, we have it and now are to manifest it. We must keep seeking spiritual matters while avoiding the earthly. What we really have is a daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition.

2
--“ Use your will and self determination to set your mind.

3
--“ The impulses and longings of our self-centered life died; therefore, they no longer have power over you. You can do it! 1 John 4:4; Philippians 4:13; Romans 8:37

4
--“ We already have the promise but not yet the reality. We are other world minded.

5
--“ “Immorality” is the Greek word “porneia” and is mostly translated “fornication.” Our society today is oblivious to God’s Word on this subject. Fornication includes premarital sex, extramarital sex, homosexuality, and sex with children or relatives.

6
--“ The wrath of God refers to judgment in the age to come. So, if you are involved in immorality, stop it. You have the ability to stop by seeking what is above.

8
--“ With our new life, we are different, so stop all the nonsense.

10
--“ Put off the old, and put on the new. If we seek the things above, pray, strive to live this right way, a new attitude will be given us without any thought or effort on our part. It just comes; that is the miracle of it!

Romans 6:1-6; Ephesians 4:21-24
The new you is God-like.

11
--“ Do not believe the lie. You have Christ in you. He is all and in all.

12
--“ Behavior in relationship to others is not the same because it’s not all about you.

Heart of compassion --“ Ephesians 4:17-20 Jesus taught in Luke 10:25-37, compassion Philippians 2:1-ff
Kindness --“ Ephesians 4:31 and 32

Colossians 3:13
--“ Forgive. Let it go now. You can do it!

14
--“ Above all else, love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

15 -17
--“ Be thankful.

23
--“ Whatever you do, do it heartily unto the Lord.
