God wants us to be active living disciples – hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3).
God does not want us to remain in our old selves. When Jesus talked about discipleship, He prefaced His words with an “if”:
Dear Father God,
Your Word says that we died, and our lives are now hidden with Christ in You. (Colossians 3:3)
By the power of the Holy Spirit, we shall set our hearts and minds on things above. We are being renewed day by day in the knowledge of Christ. Clothe us with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Help us to bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances we may have against one another. Help us to put on love, which binds us all together in perfect unity with Christ in You. The peace of Christ shall rule in our hearts and the word of Christ shall dwell in us richly.
In Jesus’ name I pray.

Father, not my will but Yours be done. Amen.
