Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Keep thinking about things above, not things on the earth, for you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. (Colossians 3:1–3)
You have been raised with Christ! You are also seeking the things above. Your life is becoming increasingly hidden in Christ as you strategically invest your time, talent, and treasure into advancing the kingdom of God. You are actively seeking to do his will.
What are some of the characteristics of the person who is seeking the things above? You are focused on doing the will of God and accomplishing the work he has for you to do. Doing the will of God is an indication that the Word of God is operating in your life. Increasingly, the fruit of the Spirit is manifesting itself in your life. Your objective is to be into low-profile, high-impact player as you help fulfill the Great Commission.
As we seek the things above, we depend on the Holy Spirit to illuminate God’s Word in our heart. We commit our time, talent, and treasure to God’s plans and desires, allowing Son Power to enable us to persevere. Seeking things above keeps us grounded and secure in God’s will.
Today, ask yourself:
In what ways does my life show that my heart and mind are seeking things above?
