1 Tim 6:12, “Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”
Col 3:1-2, “Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ (and you have), keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.”
9. No longer a slave to sin, freed from slavery to sin. We are delivered from the power of the old sin nature, Rom 2:29; 7:ff-8:ff; Phil 3:3; Col 2:11.
Phil 1:27; 3:20 are commanding the Church Age believers to conduct themselves under all the privileges and responsibilities that their heavenly citizenship confers.
