License to kill
By Teddy A Jones
TEXT (Col. 3: 5)

5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry [NIV]

5So kill (deaden, deprive of power) the evil desire lurking in your members [those animal impulses and all that is earthly in you that is employed in sin]: sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and all greed and covetousness, for that is idolatry (the deifying of self and other created things instead of God).

When He Comes...
By Teddy A Jones

TEXT (Col. 3: 3-4)

For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God 4 And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in His glory .[NLT]

Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life—even though invisible to spectators—is with Christ in God. He is your life. When Christ (your real life remember) shows up again on this earth, you’ll show, up too- the real you, the glorious you. Meanwhile be content with obscurity, like Christ.[Msg]

COMMENTARY

The Living Dead
By Teddy A Jones

TEXT (Col. 3: 1-2)
3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.[NIV]
1You have been raised to life with Christ. Now set your heart on what is in heaven, where Christ rules at God's right side. 2Think about what is up there, not about what is here on earth. [CEV]

Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life—even though invisible to spectators—is with Christ in God. He is your life. [Msg]
3For [as far as this world is concerned] you have died, and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God. [AMP]
