Seek Things Above

One definition of sin is to live apart from God and doing our own thing.

Col 3:1  If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
Col 3:2  Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
Col 3:3  For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
Col 3:4  When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

What things are above? God's will, His word, worship and praise, spiritual fruit...love.  What do you see as seeking those things which are above?

Titus 2:7  In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
Titus 2:8  Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

God is Holy, so we are to be holy and without blame.

Pro 14:34  Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.

We are to be a people who fear God and seek his will. God hates lying and sin. It is to him an abomination.
