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. 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
Where we set our hearts affection and our mind’s attention makes an eternal difference. The Bible says ‘as a man thinks, so is he’. In other words, the thoughts I have determine who I become. The ultimate payoff is that when Jesus returns, I will be with Him.
What and where are my heart and mind set? Mostly upon Christ and my life in Him. Oh that it would be completely.
Lord Jesus, I praise you that my life really is hid within You. In every way I want to be available to You and Your cause. Work within my mind and heart altogether.
