Set Your Mind On Jesus

Colossians 3:1-2 “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 minds on things above, not on earthly things.” When we set our mind on heavenly things we are in tune with God. We are following the steps He’s ordered for us. It’s not that He doesn’t want us to be concerned with what’sgoing on here on earth, but we must consult Him first so we don’t get off track and consumed with worry. Don’t get wrapped up, tied up and bogged down in this earthly mess.  That’s what Satan your enemy wants. When this happens we can get overwhelmed and thus lose faith.

Humans can become obsessed with acquiring earthly wealth, cars, homes and all kinds of possessions that are tangible. Unfortunately these earthly goods will pass away but the treasure that is stored up in heaven is everlasting. Matthew 6:20. God wants our hearts to be filled with heavenly treasures not earthly ones. “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” Verse 33 NLT. I like the way the NLT reads “…and he will give you everything you need.” Everything! Food, clothing shelter etc; but what we really need is forgiveness, and redemption, love and protection. These things are the real treasures that can only come from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. ~Blessings.
