I collapse in the dirt. Revive me with your word! — Ps 119:25 NET
If you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Keep thinking about things above, not things on the earth, for you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.—But our citizenship is in heaven – and we also await a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform these humble bodies of ours into the likeness of his glorious body by means of that power by which he is able to subject all things to himself.
For the flesh has desires that are opposed to the Spirit, and the Spirit has desires that are opposed to the flesh, for these are in opposition to each other, so that you cannot do what you want.—So then, brothers and sisters, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh (for if you live according to the flesh, you will die), but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live.—Dear friends, I urge you as foreigners and exiles to keep away from fleshly desires that do battle against the soul.
Col 3:1-3, Phil 3:20-21, Gal 5:17, Rom 8:12-13, 1 Pet 2:11
A measure of faith. — Rom 12:3 NET
The one who is weak in the faith.—But was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.
“You of little faith, why did you doubt?”—“Your faith is great! Let what you want be done for you.”
“Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” … “Let it be done for you according to your faith.”
“Increase our faith!”—But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith.—Rooted and built up in him and firm in your faith.—But it is God who establishes us together with you in Christ.—And, after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace … will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak, and not just please ourselves.—Therefore we must not pass judgment on one another, but rather determine never to place an obstacle or a trap before a brother or sister.
