On Things Above

In Colossians 3, the Apostle Paul talks about how we should live as followers of Jesus.

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. – Colossians 3:1 (NIV)

When we are baptized into Christ, we are spiritually buried with Him and raised to new life through the power of His death and resurrection. We are spiritually united with Jesus who has ascended into Heaven. Since that is where Jesus is, we should keep our hearts fixed on Heaven. We must not allow ourselves to get so focused on the things of earth that we forget about our heavenly home. Don’t get too stressed about the stuff of earth. The struggles, problems and worries of earth are only temporary. Whatever you’re going through will pass. So keep your eyes on Heaven. After all, you’re going to be there for a REALLY long time.
