PT4 Since you have been Raised To New Life With Christ, Set Your Sights On The Realities Of Heaven, Where Christ Sits At God's Right Hand In The Place Of Honor And Power. Let Heaven Fill Your Thoughts. Do not think only about things down here on Earth. For You Died When Christ Died, And Your Real Life Is Hidden With CHRIST IN GOD. And When Christ, WHO Is Your Real Life Is Revealed To The Whole World, You Will Share In All His Glory. Colossians 3:1-4 Lesson here: Being Conformed into The Image Of Christ Jesus Yahshua, is NOT About Rules, Regulations, Or Any Religion! "But what if we seek to be Made Right With God Through Faith In Christ and then find out that we are Still Sinners? Has Christ Led Us Into Sin? OF COURSE NOT! Rather, I Make Myself Guilty If I Rebuild The Old System I Already Tore Down. For When I Tried To Keep The Law, I Recognize I Couldn't Never Earn God's Approval. So I Died To The Law SO THAT I MIGHT LIVE FOR GOD. I Have Been Crucified With Christ. I Myself NO LONGER LIVE, BUT CHRIST LIVES IN ME. So I live my life in This Earthly Body By Trusting In The SON Of GOD, Who Loved Me And Gave Himself For Me. I am not one of those Who Treats The GRACE Of GOD As Meaningless. For if we could be saved by keeping the law, Then There Was No Need For CHRIST TO DIE." Galatians 2:17-21 "You Have Died With Christ, And HE Has Set You Free From The Evil Powers Of This World. So why do you keep on Following Rules Of The World, such as, Don't Handle, Don't Eat, Don't Touch. Such Rules Are Mere Human Teachings about things that are gone as soon as we use them. These Rules May Seem Wise because they Require Strong Devotion, Humility, and Severe Bodily Discipline. But They Have NO EFFECT when it comes to Conquering A Person's Evil Thoughts And Desires." Colossians 2:20-23 This Is Why We MUST Be Conformed Into The Image Of Christ Jesus Yahshua, Which Is Our New Lifestyle. This Takes Salvation, Sanctification, Transformation, And An Impartation. This Is The PROCESS!
