from the KJV, NLT, & The Message Translations
If you are serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it! Pursue the things over which He presides. Don't shuffle around, eyes to the ground, absorbed with things right in front of you. Look up! And be alert to what is going on around the Anointed One and His Anointing ---that's where the action is! See things from His perspective.
So when you be risen to new life with Christ (the Anointed One), seek, set your sights on, those things which are above ... the realities of Heaven, where He sits in the place of honor at the right hand of God.
Set your affection on things above ... think about the things of Heaven, not on things of Earth.
For you are dead, you died to this life and your real life is hid with Christ (the Anointed One) in God. When Christ (the Anointed One and His Anointing) who is our life, shall appear and is revealed to the whole world, then you shall also appear with Him and share in all His Glory.
Mortify (put to) death the sinful, earthly things lurking within your members which are upon the Earth. This means killing off everything connected with your old way of living.
Reverend Robert W. & Mary C. Butler
