|A Prayer Diary||
If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the universe, why do you live as if you still belonged to the world?
As God’s chosen ones, holy and believed, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.
And say to Archippus, “See that you complete the task that you have received in the Lord.
As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in faith just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone.
Get your mind on things that are above, not on things that are on earth, for you have died and yur life is hidden with Christ in God.

attempt to related the two (as I do in my daily quote and blog entries) and
yet, sometimes that will happen, for as we know God works in mysterious ways.
