Rejoice the Lord is king
God himself is with us
We have heard the Joyful sound
Lead me, Lord, in thy righteousness
Praise my soul the king of heaven
So let our lips and lives express
Let all things their creator bless
Scripture Colossians 3 :1-17
 Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.  On account of these the wrath of God is coming.  In these you too once walked, when you were living in them.  But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.  Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices  and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.  Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.
 Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience,  bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.  And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.  And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.  And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
(Colossians 3:1-17 ESV)
The problem is.. If you make rules it doesn't change the desires of people.
It doesn't stop our hearts from burning with sin.
The question is... How do we deal with that internal sin?
How do we show our new life in him?
If we are joined to Jesus in new life... We need to show it.
Raised with Christ
Died to sin.
So put it to death that earthly part of us.
We need to wage war against that earthly part of us. We need to kill it.
Put them away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, obscene talk, lying, sexual immorality, impurity , passion, evil desire, covetousness, idolatry,
Put them away. Realize they are signs of selfishness.... They make your life revolve around them. The first list being internal, the second being external.
Watch your attitudes and desires.
Be aware that these things bring about the wrath of God.
Remember that when the Lord is part of your life, that your life is different now.
We no longer have to live in that old life.
Now God is renewing my life, changing me, driving away my old life.
So drive the old away. Kill it off. Realize it doesn't fit with your life now.
Put on the following
Bearing with one another
Forgiving each other as the Lord forgives you
Don't be so earthly minded that you are no heavenly good.
