The Basis for Christian Living in the World (3:3-7)

In this passage Paul lays down a foundation for leading a life in the world that is demonstrably different from that of unbelievers. In the first place he is explaining a reason; the connecting word "for" is omitted by the NIV. But he does not specifically tell his readers whether he is addressing the question of why we ought to live this life or why we can live it. Perhaps his material answers both of these questions.
