Colossians 3:1-3 - Setting our Minds to Things Above

Colossians 3:1-3 "So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth, for you have died, and your life is hidden in Christ in God."

How easy is it to set our minds on "other things"? You know, the stress and pressures of everyday life, trying to do the best you can in life. I have some idea of the things that take our focus in life. I know what it's like to worry about how you can possibly pay that next power bill. I know what it's like to have more on your plate than what time allows. It is so easy to set our minds on our situations, and ponder things from a human, natural perspective.

The words of Colossians are a great reminder. Set your mind on things that are above - you know, think about God, get a heavenly perspective. Actually we are challenged here to not only have our mind focussed on God, but to seek things that are above! Live our lives for God. Focussed on God and living for God.

While the pressures of everyday life probably won't dissipate anytime soon, let's take on the words of Colossians 3:1-3 and set our lives to reflect God's purposes and will.
