“When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: for which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: in the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.” Colossians 3:4-7 (KJV)
The Christian life is a changed life. The grace of God changes the heart of the one receiving grace. Love for God, His Son, His cross; the death, burial and resurrection. God loves you just the way you are. By His grace He will not leave you the way you are.
-Tim A. Blankenship
