So get rid of your old self, which made you live as you used to- the old self that was being destroyed by its deceitful desires. Your hearts and minds must be made completely new. And you must put on the new self, which is created in God’s likeness and reveals itself in the true life that is upright and holy.
No more lying, then! Each of you must tell the truth to the other believer , because we are all members together in the body of Christ. If you become angry, do not lead your anger lead you to sin, and do not stay angry all day. Don’t give the devil a chance. If you used to rob, you must stop robbing and start working, in order to earn an honest living for yourself and to be able to help the poor. Do not use harmful words, but only helpful words, the kind that build up and provide what is needed, so that what you say will do good to those who hear you. And do not make God’s holy spirit sad; for the spirit is God’s mark of ownership on you, a guarantee that the day will come when God will set you free. Get rid of all the bitterness , passion and anger. No more shouting or insults, no more hateful feelings of any sort. Instead be kind and tender-hearted to one another, and forgive one another, as God has forgiven you through Christ.
