The Mystery of The Bible - 6 (Holiness 3)
Good day to you readers, friends, and followers. This is another episode of the Mystery of the Bible and currently, we are talking about holiness. In my last post on this topic, I talked about what is required to be holy; living a holy life which is the standard of God.
I started with the first four verses of the book of Colossians 3 and I will be treating the verse 5 today but in parts. I will be taking what is listed in that verse one after the other so that it will be clear and I will stick to not writing too much in each episode for easy reading.
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry..... Colossians 3: 5
This verse is telling us to kill "your members which are upon the earth" which means that there are things we do that is opposite what is required of us to be holy. These things are already part of us as a human born in this world of sin. The Bible made us understand that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and not only that, we are all in flesh (human form) and we were born in sin
5 - Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. - Psalms 51:5
Which means that everyone is a sinner but once we now accept Jesus Christ, then we died to sin and our life is hidden in Him (Colossians 3:3); we have to kill all that is called sin and stay on the Lord's side. The first thing that is listed in the verse (5) is Fornication which I will be talking about in the next episode.
Thanks for reading and stay blessed.
