Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth (Colossians 3:2).

A Christian is from above because his life, thoughts and wisdom are from above. In fact, because you are from above, your hopes and investments are not here on earth. No wonder Jesus Christ said in Matthew 6:19 thus, “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal.” You are expected to function from above where Jesus Christ is seated. Every Christian should take note of the fact that he is not from this earth but rather he is from above.

This world is not permanent because it is transient. That is why the Bible tells us in Revelation 21:1, “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.” The present world and its system will pass away to usher in a new heaven and a new earth where Jesus Christ is seated and reign forever. This is your eternal home where you belong forever. Whoever that is from above is always supreme and exercise eternal dominion (Romans 8:37).

As a Christian, let your focus and affection be in Christ Jesus who is our Redeemer and Master. The Bible says clearly that His kingdom is not of this world (John 18:36). When you put your love and affection in Jesus Christ, your hope will forever be sustained. That is the reason why Apostle Paul says, “When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory” (Colossians 3:4). A Christian is an embodiment of Jesus Christ whose life will always reflect and manifest the glory of His.

Daily Tip: A Christian should learn to set his mind above where Jesus Christ is seated above principalities and powers. Shalom!
