“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:2).
The Apostle Paul here discloses one great means of living on earth from an eternal perspective. We are not instructed to literally leave the earth. We must remain in the world but with an awareness that we are not of the world. Although we reside below, our passion is above. Our focus and passion don’t automatically become heavenly minded. Rather we have to intentionally set our affection heaven-wards. We regularly refocus on the Kingdom. We continually check whether we’re still demonstrating genuine love for God. It’s about being excited about things divine and things spiritual. It’s about being thrilled by the Word of God. Will you do that today?
