A Heavenly Life 

October 23, 2014

 

“If then your were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.  Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” - Colossians 3:1-3

My friend, Paul is saying that when Christ died, you died, when He was buried you were buried, and when He was raised from the dead your were raised, and when He ascended to heaven you ascended, and when He sat down at the right hand of the Father you sat down with Him. When God the Father looks to His right hand, He sees Christ and you in Him, clothed with His righteousness. This is your heavenly position. This is what Paul means when He says, “Seek and set your mind above.” My friend, to enjoy a heavenly life on earth you only need to Abide Above.
