Put on the New Self

Colossians 3:1-4 (KJV)
1 "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 "Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 "For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 "When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory."
Colossians 3:1-4 (TPT)
1 "Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority!
2 "Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm.
3 "Your crucifixion with Christ has severed the tie to this life, and now your true life is hidden away in God in Christ.
4 "And as Christ himself is seen for who he really is, who you really are will also be revealed, for you are now one with him in his glory!"
When I made Jesus the Lord of my life I couldn’t get enough of the Word of God. I couldn't seem to satisfy the hunger that I had to know more about Him. To be a child of God and a citizen in His kingdom consumed me, and I was zealous to learn more. Before then, I always had the mindset that God was angry with me most of the time. Not that I didn’t give Him plenty of reason to, but the truth was He was madly in love with me, and wanted to give me a better life that can only be found in Him.
Father, I am grateful for this new life that You have given me, and I pray that I get a better understanding of that new person I have become. Thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to teach me to grow into the person that you created me to be. In Jesus's name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
