Through Christ we’ve been born again into a new life. We became alive through Christ, and our hope is now laid up for us in heaven; there our great High Priest is, "A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man" Hebrews 8:2.
Now, that you became alive, "set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth." Seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth - do not continue to serve God through the letter or in same old ways when a more excellent ministry, something better is come. Let heaven fill your thoughts.
The apostle said, "Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him" Colossians 3:9-10. What do we see in Church today? Lies! Most of our prophets are children of disobedience, period. You can tell from the way they teach you that Christ is not all, and in all.
But here the apostle said mortify, put off the old ways, and put on "therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies....and let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom...and whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him" Colossians 3:12-17
God has given us this new kind of life, to worship him in spirit and truth. In this new life, (life in the spirit) we’re guided by the principles of the doctrine of Christ, not by the old ways.
