If however you have risen with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, enthroned at God's right hand.
Give your minds to the things that are above, not to the things that are on the earth.
For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ appears--He is our true Life--then you also will appear with Him in glory.
Therefore put to death your earthward inclinations--fornication, impurity, sensual passion, unholy desire, and all greed, for that is a form of idolatry.
It is on account of these very sins that God's anger is coming,
and you also were once addicted to them, while you were living under their power.
