Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
This is the summation of who we are In Christ. What does this mean to set our minds on things above?
Paul is talking about our earthly behavior in terms of character, poise, morals, uprightness and our love for doing what is righteous in God’s will for our lives.
Our gradual and steady growth In Christ is all about letting go of the ways in which we formally lived prior to our being born again.
Ask yourself if you are ready to meet Jesus. What state of mind and activity will he find you? In the blink of an eye we could be caught in the air with Him. Therefore, now is the time to get our spiritual character in order.
We know what to avoid because conviction leads us to steer away from evil and to live as if we were Living By The Holy Spirit.
Time to examine the life and times of Jesus and to imitate Him best as we can. Soon, we will be spending eternity with Him.
Keeping it 💯
