Put to Death Your Members #690

Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. (Colossians 3:5, NKJV)

In today’s verse, Paul places sensual and sexual sins (including covetousness) in our members. To strike a death blow against sin we must consciously cease using our bodies to fulfill sinful desires and lusts (see Rom. 6:12-13). Our every thought is to be brought “into captivity to the obedience of Christ”  in order to walk by faith and not according to the flesh (2 Cor. 10:2-4). Analyze your actions to help you take inventory of your heart’s desires. Are your desires pure or putrid in God’s sight? Remember, how you live graphically displays the Master you serve.
