Take Time With God #101: “All Christians should be dead!!!”

Take Time With God #101: “All Christians should be dead!!!”

Therefore [a]consider the members of your earthly body as dead to[b]immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which [c]amounts to idolatry. For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come[d]upon the sons of disobedience, and in them you also once walked, when you were living [e]in them. But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth. [f]Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old [g]self with its evil practices, 10 and haveput on the new self who is being [h]renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him— 11 a renewal in which there is nodistinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised,[i]barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.
