Life In The Spirit – Part 25

In Paul’s epistles, he always linked doctrinal truth with practical expression.

In his epistle to Colossians, Paul stated that as believers, Christ is our life, and one day we will manifest His magnificent glory. In light of that statement, Paul spoke of putting to death (mortifying) sins that are associated with our earthly members.

A garden left to itself will produce more weeds than vegetables. A life without resistance to the lust of the flesh will become overwhelmed with sins.

It is for that reason Paul said, "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)

Colossians 3:6-7 says, "Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the SONS OF DISOBEDIENCE, in which you yourselves ONCE WALKED when you lived in them."

Although the penalty of sin has been paid on our behalf and we are new creations (Romans 6:23; 2 Corinthians 5:17, and 21), it is equally true that sin still attacks our unredeemed humanity. Therefore, WE MUST CONTINUALLY YIELD AND TRUST OURSELVES TO THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS POWER (Zechariah 4:6; Ephesians 5:18, and 6:17).

The “sons of disobedience”, in Colossians 3:6, is referring to those who are not born again. God has placed the wrath for the sins of the believers on Jesus, AND WE WILL NOT BE PUNISHED, because that would be double jeopardy.

Those who reject Jesus will be punished, but not for their individual sins. The sins of the whole world have already been paid for (1 John 2:2 with Hebrews 9:12 and Hebrews 9:15). Those who reject Jesus will be judged for the singular sin of not believing on Jesus (John 16:9). That’s the greatest sin of all.

Paul was writing to believers. Probably some of them were guilty of the sins mentioned in Colossians 3:5, but Paul was making a distinction between them and “the sons of disobedience” (Colossians 3:6). Paul was stressing that the Colossian believers used to habitually commit the acts of immorality mentioned in Colossians 3:5.

Colossians 3:8‭-‬10 says, "But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds. PUT ON YOUR NEW NATURE, AND BE RENEWED AS YOU LEARN TO KNOW YOUR CREATOR AND BECOME LIKE HIM."

The Lord is giving us a command to bring our bodies and souls under control. He would be unjust to command such a thing if we were incapable of doing it. We can do it.

So, according to Colossians 3:10, life in the Spirit is having our natural life influenced by who we are in Christ. The life in the Spirit is not lived by our natural strength, the Holy Spirit gives us power to live (Zechariah 4:6 & John 6:63).

Life In The Spirit – Part 24

Colossians 3:1‭-‬2 (MSG) says, "So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. SEE THINGS FROM HIS PERSPECTIVE."

If we place a higher value on what we have in Christ than what we have on earth, our hearts will follow. Where our treasure is, there will our hearts be also (Matthew 6:21). Thinking on the riches we have in Christ will turn our hearts toward heavenly things.

Colossians 3:2‭-‬3 says, "Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. FOR YOU DIED TO THIS LIFE, and YOUR REAL LIFE IS HIDDEN WITH CHRIST IN GOD."

Biblically, death means separation, not annihilation. Adam and Eve didn’t cease to exist when they ate of the forbidden fruit, but they did die, or BECOME SEPARATED FROM GOD. At physical death, people don’t cease to exist, but their spirits and souls separate from their bodies.

Likewise, OUR DEATH TO SIN IS A SEPARATION FROM SIN AND ITS PENALTIES. The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). We were guilty of sin, and the death sentence was imposed on us. BUT JESUS DIED FOR US, PAYING OUR DEBT. The Scriptures teach that we were crucified with Christ (Galatians 2:20).

Now we are dead to, or separated from, sin and its penalty, which was death, or separation from God. SIN CAN NEVER CONDEMN US AGAIN (Romans 8:1). We are no longer liable for our sins in the sight of God. THIS IS THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL.

The word “hidden”, in verse 3, is used metaphorically as something that is concealed and safe. We as Christians have not yet been glorified and perfected in our flesh, but WE ARE NOW JUSTIFIED, SECURE, AND SAFE IN CHRIST JESUS (Romans 8:31-39).

Colossians 3:4 says, "When Christ, Who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in [the splendor of His] glory." Because my life is hidden with Christ in God, I will appear with Jesus in glory when He appears. THIS ISN'T DEPENDENT ON MY SELF-HOLINESS. This is part of the gift of salvation that I received through faith.

Paul stated that Christ Himself is our life. HE DOESN'T JUST GIVE LIFE; HE IS OUR LIFE (John 14:6). In 2 Corinthians 4:10, Paul stated that it is the life of Jesus that is manifested in our mortal bodies. CHRISTIANITY IS NOT US LIVING FOR GOD BUT RATHER CHRIST LIVING THROUGH US. Therefore, we should die to ourselves and let Christ live through us without hindrance.
