Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.
Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.
“Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.”
And this is God’s plan: Both Gentiles and Jews who believe the Good News share equally in the riches inherited by God’s children. Both are part of the same body, and both enjoy the promise of blessings because they belong to Christ Jesus.
We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere, I have not stopped thanking God for you.
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.
