In this lesson we look at the new nature and the old relationships. We look at the family relationships, the master and servant relationships, and we look at doing our work as unto the Lord.
This lesson breaks down into three sections. 1. We discuss Paul's statement that we are "God's chosen." 2. We look at what we are to put on. 3. We look at the foundational principle that should guide us in all of this. Sub topics include, God's love for us, compassion, humility, meekness, and letting the word of Christ dwell in us richly.
This lesson focuses on two things. First, we look at what is earthly in us. Second, we look at how it is put to death. The first part is an exposition of the passage, and the second part is a short look at some of the thoughts from John Owens book the "Mortification of Sin."
This lesson starts by exploring what Paul meant when he said, "Set your minds on things above." It then considers three reasons why we should set our minds on things above as revealed in the text. The three reason are: 1. You have been raised in Christ, 2. Your life is hidden in Christ, and 3. Glory will be experienced when Christ returns.
