“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things, for you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.” Colossians 3:1-4
There are so many things in this busy world that we focus our hearts on. Some are good things, and some are not so good. Christ has died and risen for our gain, and in response to this, He calls us to “set our minds on things above, not on earthly things” Christ has died for us and through His resurrection, our lives become one with his.
What are some things in your life that consume a large part of your heart and mind?
Are those things “earthly” things that distract you from God?
What are some ways that you can focus your mind and heart on “things above”?
