Psalm 36:7–9 (AV)

7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.

8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

9 For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

- Put to death

Colossians 3:1–5 (AV)

1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

- Compare & add v.11

v.8c - “we shall also live with Him”

- it is not an exclusively future setting

- It is also a “here and now” orientation,

v.8b - Pivotal “we believe”

- Confident truth

Disgust - v.7-8

We know what is meant by disgust. Take the case of a sick man, when food of a certain kind is presented to him; consider how certain scents, or tastes, affect certain persons, and you will be at no loss to determine what is meant by disgust.

On the other hand, consider how pleasant a meal is to the hungry, or some enlivening odour to the faint; how refreshing the air is to the languid, or the brook to the weary and thirsty; and you will understand what is implied ill being alive with Christ.

- To be dead with Christ is to have our hearts and minds turned towards God and heaven

- To be dead with Christ is to hate and turn from sin.

- To be dead with sin is to be disgusted with sin

- To be dead to sin is that its atmosphere oppresses, distresses, and stifles us

Psalm 119:37 (GW)

37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things. Give me a new life in your ways.
