Made Alive in Christ Speech Col3

Living as Those Made Alive in Christ
You have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.  Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. . Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.  But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.   Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.  Here there is no slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all. Therefore, as God’s people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.  Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord has forgiven you.  And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. Be thankful.   Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Instructions for Christian Households

 Wives, give way yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.  Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.  Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged. Employees, obey your employers in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.  Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Because you know you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.  Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.

Betty’s quotes
On Christianity
“Christianity is a life not a religion”
On Acceptance
“Its wasted time telling others what to do. It’s like trying to grow your hair in another direction. After a while you just cut it off.” On Life
“Let others follow their own journey, after all you are only in charge of your own.”
