Colossians 3:25 For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality.

The better interpretation, as it is talking to Christians in the church of Corinth, is "Since" you have been raised...(most commentators prefer that word usage)
Thus, the verse is telling us that since our new life is entirely wrapped up in the Person of Jesus Christ, who is already in the heavens having begun the eternal Kingdom rule, while we are here (where not everything has yet submitted to that rule) we should be living for that future kingdom that is eternal.
So...verse 5, so stop acting like the world acts, and feeding the flesh which will one day perish.Instead you should be doing the things that are a part of the work of Christ as He continues His ministry to mankind here through his church.
so allow the Word of Christ to be in you, through you, and for you, for the mutual benefit of each other... and do it all in the name of the one who died for you. For only His pleasure is our goal. Only His worship and glory should we seek. For He is faithful to produce fruit, guide, and fellowship with those here, but also reward eternally in the next age, those who serve and please him.

Brothers and Sisters, this verse says that we that have been raised with Christ are to seek those things that are above and that Christ is seated at the right hand of God! Do you know what He is doing? He is interceding for us! Now that'll make you shout, WELL GLORY!

yes we will be seated at the right hand of god


Serve others with you Heart, for we carry CHRIST, we need to remember what is to come and through knowing there is Heaven and we will be with our father, don't wait to experience the peace, he can give it to you now. Trust in him with your HEART, MIND and SOUL.

We are now born again: we are ALIVE, with Christ, who was dead and is now ALIVE. Our hearts are AWAKE. We KNOW what true and inconditional love is. We know God. Let us not follow the patterns of the world anymore, but let us listen to the Holy Spirit in our hearts and love with Christ.

A comment I could think of is to praise God almighty amd Surrender to him. I need the Lord!

As a Child of The most High God we tend to mess up alot. I can understand what Paul said I do the thing that I should't and the the thing that I should do I don't. We all fall into pit of sin because we take our eyes off Jesus. Jesus is our Savior,our leader,our guide,that strong tower,the safe heavan,that light house that guides us in stormy seas and that is why we need to keep our eyes on Jesus. When Peter walked on water he didn't sink untill he took his eyes off Jeus. This world is not our home heaven is all the world is going to pass away and the lust thereof. The lust of the eyes,the lust of the fesh and the pride of life.
I love you and Jesus loves you have a blessed day. Pastor Steve
