You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.

Colossians 3:5



5 Mortify [nekroo] therefore [oun] your [humon] members [melos] which [ho] are upon [epi] the earth; [ge] fornication, [porneia] uncleanness, [akatharsia] inordinate affection, [pathos] evil [kakos] concupiscence, [epithumia] and [kai] covetousness, [pleonexia] which [hostis] is [esti] idolatry: [eidololatreia] KJV-Interlinear



5 Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry. NASB



The word for death here, is used as a metaphor, symbolical for separating your fleshy desires from the power (your sin nature) which drives them.


You accomplish this death, mentally by making decisions, by abstaining, by refusing to entertain the temptations, by terminating your lusts or covetnesses for things that you wish you could have for your own possession.


Instead of pondering the things of this world, you need to ponder the instruction you receive from the scriptures, ponder the repercussions of each respective approach for your life, ponder what your future will really be like should you pursue one course of action verses another.


Anything of this world is evil.


Anything of the spiritual realm is good.


The same intent can result in either good or evil depending on your motivator. For example, passion from the carnal perspective will turn to evil, however passion from the spiritual perspective (correct passion), is good.Helping a little old lady across the street from the carnal perspective is evil (energy of the flesh).Helping the same lady across the street when in fellowship (energy of the spirit), is good.


When making any decision, when reacting to any set of circumstances, then first consider your objective and your actions, and your spiritual state, and how they line up with doctrine.


Your overall objective in life should be to maximize your spiritual life and minimize the carnal side of your life.


The carnal side gets you nothing, and actually causes you to lose phenomenal blessings.


The spiritual side of life gets you your heart s desire from the perspective of good.


In the carnal life, you may have dreams and hopes, and wishes, but you will never attain them.


In the spiritual life, the scriptures will transform your dreams into greater and phenomenal things for which God has made provision for you, and you will live them.
