    colossians 3:5 mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth fornication uncleanness inordinate affection evil concupiscence and covetousness which is odolatry

    This sums up our relationship with Christ as it relates to this world,How we relate with our spouses and children and relationships with unbelievers and our character in this world, it is chapter full of insights for us to walk Christ like ans focus on christ for He is our life Amen,until His return. Be blessed beloved
  • A disciple
    "Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth." The heathen spirit that reigns over the hearts and minds of men, is what's behind all their "philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ." If we were of this world then we would love the same things the world loves, and live by its spirits. But we seek another world!
