Where Is My Mind Set?
“Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God” Colossians 3:1-3
“Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern. For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things. For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.” Philippians 3:17-21
When my mind is set on earthly things – Psalm 4:2 is fulfilled “How long, O you sons of men, will you turn my glory to shame? How long will you love worthlessness and seek falsehood?”
God turned our shame into glory at the Cross, our sin into righteousness – may we feast on Jesus bread and drink His blood, not with wrath and doubting but praise and thanksgiving, love HIM who is only Worthy and glorious, seek truth which is Christ alone. Run to the mercy seat, now is our time of need!
