Colossians 3:1-2


Colossians 3:1-2 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.


O Christ, what freedom I have in you. In you I am a new man, a new creation! O how my old self delights in defying and disobeying you. But in baptism you cleansed me from my sin and purified me from guilt. In baptism I am a new creation, created to make you #1 in my life at all times. Yet I still struggle with my sinful flesh. So I pray give me wisdom to see when you aren’t receiving top priority. Give me the willingness to make the necessary changes so that I always set my heart and mind on things above. May it be evident to all in my life that you are #1. Amen.
