 We have members on earth-no recognized life; and we have to put to death all these members of the old man….putting to death is an act of power in that which is good-the new man. (Colossians 3 by J.N. Darby)
 {vss. 5-17} what follows in this 3rd chapter is the exercise of divesting the character of the old life and putting on the character of the new, so that the divine objective of having a reproduction of Christ displayed in the saints would be achieved (chap. 1:27). (The Believer's Identification With the Death and Resurrection of Christ by B. Anstey)
 Put to death is a strong and forcible expression. Our tendency is to parley with these things, and sometimes even play with them and make provision for them. Our safety, however, lies in action of a ruthless kind. (The Believer's Identification With the Death and Resurrection of Christ by B. Anstey)
 “covetousness, which is idolatry.” Covetousness is allowing the desire for something to have an undue place in our hearts that displaces God, and anything that displaces God in our affections is an idol. (The Believer's Identification With the Death and Resurrection of Christ by B. Anstey)
 It is really what man is; and such is the nature which alone we had as children of Adam. These are alas! in the singularly energetic language of the Spirit of God here called the members of the man. (Colossians 3 by W. Kelly)
