5-Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.
Notes verse 5 — “Put to death” What does it mean when we put something to death? Simple, we end it, we stop letting it control us, and we let it go. We are commanded to let go of whatever belongs to our earthly nature. To give us an idea of what that may consist of we are given a short list of sins. This list is short, but the whatever covers it all. Take a moment and reflect on the earthly nature and then take some time to repent of those sins.
