Colossians 3:5-6 (NET)
So put to death whatever in your nature belongs to the earth: sexual immorality, impurity, shameful passion, evil desire, and greed which is idolatry.
Because of these things the wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience.

Fola was terribly afflicted in her body and she did not understand why this kept going on. She cried to the Lord for help. One Saturday morning, Pastor Clara felt led to go pray for Fola. But before she started praying, she felt led to ask Fola certain questions. It became clear to pastor Clara that Fola was still living like an unbeliever, even though she was very committed to the church. Fola’s sinful life was the reason she was afflicted. She confessed her faults to Pastor Clara and she became healed after Pastor Clara prayed for her and anointed her with oil. (see James 5:13-16).

The reason why believers must put to death whatever is in their nature that belongs to the earth is because we do not want to be partakers in the wrath of God that is coming on the sons of disobedience.

Many believers suffer many things that they are not to suffer because they are still living as unbelievers.
This doesn’t mean the righteous cannot be afflicted. The only difference is that the Lord will always deliver the righteous (see Psalm 34:19).

Go into today determining to mortify everything in you that is not in conformity to the nature of Christ.
Ask the Lord to help you to this end.
-Pastor SD Abraham
