Daily devotional for 23 July 2017 – Colossians 3:1-4
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want write a devotional on the words of Colossians 3:1-4 (NIV):
Living as Those Made Alive in Christ1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
These words really speak to me as I am so easily consumed to put my mind on earthly things and forget to set my heart fully on things above. God tells us that this will not help us, because we will then be consumed by the “troubles” that this earth loves to bring to our doorstep.
But out of my own experience it solves nothing. Therefore, I pray for me and all of you that we learn to let go fo all earthly things and set our heart fully on things above where Chrits is seated. When you got baptized both in water and in the Holy Spirit, you died your earthly body and your life is now from God and for God. Know that God’s glory is also over your life. Don’t let the world determine how you feel, but focus on God, because He only has the best in store for you.
In Jesus name I pray! Amen!
