Not Carnality but Christ


1 If then you were araised with Christ, seek those things which are above, bwhere Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the aearth.
3 aFor you died, band your life is hidden with Christ in God.
4 aWhen Christ who is bour life appears, then you also will appear with Him in cglory.
5 aTherefore put to death byour members which are on the earth: cfornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, dwhich is idolatry.
6 aBecause of these things the wrath of God is coming upon bthe sons of disobedience,
7 ain which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.
8 aBut now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.
9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds,
10 and have put on the new man who ais renewed in knowledge baccording to the image of Him who ccreated him,
11 where there is neither aGreek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircum-

Character of the New Man

12 Therefore, aas the elect of God, holy and beloved, bput on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering;
13 abearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
14 aBut above all these things bput on love, which is the cbond of perfection.
15 And let athe peace of God rule in your hearts, bto which also you were called cin one body; and dbe thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another ain psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And awhatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

The Christian Home

18 aWives, submit to your own husbands, bas is fitting in the Lord.
19 aHusbands, love your wives and do not be bbitter toward them.
20 aChildren, obey your parents bin all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord.
21 aFathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
22 aBondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God.
23 aAnd whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,
24 aknowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; bfor1 you serve the Lord Christ.
25 But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and athere is no partiality.


1 Masters,a give your bondservants what is just and fair, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.

Christian Graces

2 aContinue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it bwith thanksgiving;
3 ameanwhile praying also for us, that God would bopen to us a door for the word, to speak cthe 1mystery of Christ, dfor which I am also in chains,

Folly of the Godless, and God’s Final Triumph

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of

1 THE afool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good.

2 aThe LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
3 aThey have all turned aside, They have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one.
