I am interested in what the King James Version uses the word mature.  As many of us who are mature have this mind.  What is our mind to be like if we are mature?  We would have more related thoughts. Can I use myself as an example as Paul did? In the next two he explains the opposite.  Their god is consumption both physical (appetites) and mental (lack of proper spiritual thought).  Then they are said to be enemies of the cross of Christ.  Jesus said that if anyone would come after me let him take up his cross and follow me.
I find the next verses precious, that our citizenship is in heaven from which we eagerly wait for the Savior the Lord Jesus Christ.  When He comes this corruptible body will be transformed like Christs resurrected body.  Is He able? Yes He is able.  Those words subdue all things unto Himself is so profound that I don’t have space enough to relate it here.
