5 You love the things of God.
Colossians 3:1 "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God."
God does not water down His truth so that people will buy it. God is not going to let you devise your own way to seek Him, find Him and know Him. God says, if ye are risen with Christ then we are to seek those things which are above. So often people want to know: How do I know if I am saved? How do I know if I am filled with the Spirit? How do I know if I am in the will of God? Are we seeking the things that are above where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God? That's how you know these things.
Does it please you to make changes in your TV viewing, so that you can take charge of purifying what enters into your mind?
Does it thrill you to help others?
Do you enjoy giving? These are the things of God.
Cultural and traditional Christianity are not a good replacement for relationship that brings you to Christlikeness.
How can you tell if you are growing in grace? You love the things of God."
