Another "If"

Here is another “if”: “If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the world, why, as if you were still alive in the world, do you submit to regulations—“ (Colossians 2:20 ESV).

“If” this is true, why are you living as if you still belonged to the world?

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” (Colossians 3:1)

“If” this is true, set your hearts and minds on things above.

“If” has a consequence of “then” or “therefore.”

“Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.” (Colossians 3:5)

In the Lord Jesus Christ,

Jim Wilson
