Hebrews 12:2

King James Version

2 Looking unto Jesus 

the author and finisher of our faith; 

who for the joy that was set before him 

endured the cross, 

despising the shame, 

and is set down 

at the right hand of the throne of God.

The world is full of distraction.

Keeping you in darkness, and deception.

Keeping our eyes away from JESUS.

When He is all there is, and will ever be.

One chapter in the Bible has much to say.

On what we must focus on, and how we are to live.

We are to be ready when the LORD receives His faithful anytime.

Our hearts must be right with GOD:

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.

Why are we to do so?

Colossians 3:3-4

King James Version

3 For ye are dead, 

and your life is hid with Christ in God.

4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, 

then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

How are we to do that?

Colossians 3:5

King James Version

5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

Colossians 3:8

King James Version

8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

Colossians 3:9-11

King James Version

9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

Colossians 3:12-13

King James Version

12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

Colossians 3:14

King James Version

14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

Colossians 3:15

King James Version

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Colossians 3:16

King James Version

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Colossians 3:17

King James Version

17 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 3:18-19

King James Version

18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.

Colossians 3:20

King James Version

20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.

Colossians 3:21

King James Version

21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

Colossians 3:22

King James Version

22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God;

Colossians 3:23-24

King James Version

23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

We can accomplish all these, if we are born again.

That helps us become spiritually-discerning.

We are to be childlike with JESUS.

That makes us teachable.

SPIRIT will guide us to CHRIST.

That connects us to GOD.

We are to guard us against the sins of the flesh.

That we may be holy.

The gospel is nonnegotiable.

GOD's laws are clear.

To the humble, teachable, repentant heart.

Who seeks only to be with CHRIST.

Knowing his citizenship is not here.

But only with CHRIST.
