The Key to Holy Living
How many times do we find ourselves focusing on the earthy things like, money, food, people, music, looks, etc. I just named some things that I focus on when it comes with earthly things go. Those things keep me from living a holy and righteous life.
What would be things we can set our mind that are on things above? It's said in Colossians 3:12 that we should clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. and all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Everything we need to know as Christians is Love. If we know what Love is then our life's will be a reflection of Jesus Christ.
Something that has to be done on a daily basic, is Holy Living. The key to Holy Living is in verse Colossians 3:17 and is said whatever you do with word or deed, do it in the name of the Lord Jesus, and giving thanks to God. I find it hard a lot of the times to thank people much less my God. The verse means to thank God for everything and do everything through His name and be thankful for the outcome.
2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.12 Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
17 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.
