by Rev Joel Yong
Since you were brought back to life with Christ, focus on the things that are above–where Christ holds the highest position. Keep your mind on things above, not on worldly things.
In baptism, we have died to our old ways and become alive to a new way of life in Jesus.
We did it publicly and proclaimed we now belong to Him.
It’s like a wedding. We say we are done with our previous lovers and now committed to this one and only love in our life.
We do it publicly and we now live a new life devoted to this bride or groom.
So it would be a joke and cheapening the whole rite of marriage or baptism if we continue thereafter in dalliances with our old sinful habits or our old lovers.
Fill your mind with godly things.
Things that please God.
Our thoughts fuel our deeds. It will lead to a transformed life. A new one with this Master we have committed to following.
