Bible Quote 3:1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
3:2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
3:3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
3:4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
3:5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.

3:6 Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.
3:7 You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.
3:8 But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
3:9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices
3:10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.

3:11 Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.
