Colossians 3

Put On the New Self

1 Therefore if you have been 1raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, 2seated at the right hand of God.
2 3Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.
3 For you have 4died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, 5who is our life, is revealed, 6then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.
6 For it is because of these things that 10the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience,
7 and 11in them you also once walked, when you were living in them.
8 But now you also, 12put them all aside: 13anger, wrath, malice, slander, and 14abusive speech from your mouth.
9 15Do not lie to one another, since you 16laid aside the old self with its evil practices,
10 and have 17put on the new self who is being 18renewed to a true knowledge 19according to the image of the One who 20created him-
11 a renewal in which 21there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, 22circumcised and uncircumcised, 23barbarian, Scythian, 24slave and freeman, but 25Christ is all, and in all.
12 So, as those who have been 26chosen of God, holy and beloved, 27put on a 28heart of compassion, kindness, 29humility, gentleness and 30patience;
15 Let 36the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in 37one body; and be thankful.
17 42Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, 43giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

Family Relations

18 44Wives, 45be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
19 46Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them.
20 47Children, be obedient to your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing to the Lord.
21 48Fathers, do not exasperate your children, so that they will not lose heart.
22 49Slaves, in all things obey those who are your masters on earth, 50not with external service, as those who merely please men, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord.
23 Whatever * you do, do your work heartily, 51as for the Lord rather than * for men,
24 52knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of 53the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you 54serve.
25 For 55he who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and 56that without partiality.
