Colossians 3:2-4 (NKJV) 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

We as believers are not to be defined by worldly views. Instead, Christians are to view the world with God’s perspective. Meaning we are to see things in reference to their importance to God. Beware of Christians who are shaped by liberal and worldly views. As the Apostle Paul tells us, “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” (Philippians 3:18-19 NKJV). My friends, “Set your mind on things above.” “For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” Our old nature has been put to death with Christ on the cross on Calvary. Our old nature was crucified with Christ. For He bore our sins on the cross. Christ was our substitute. He paid the penalty for our sins. That is when we died with Christ. And we were given a new nature in Christ. We were born again. For “…as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:12-13 NKJV). We no longer are bound to Adam in whom we inherit our sin nature. Now through the baptism of the Holy Spirit we have been born again, we are a new creation in Christ. We have a new nature, one that is in Christ. And since we are in Christ, my friends, we should live our lives for Christ, and let Him live out His life through us. As John said, it is his intent to “declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us” (1 John 1:2 NKJV). We as Christians are to do the same. We are to show people eternal life. We are to show people Christ for He is eternal life. And the way that we show people Christ is by letting Him live His life through us. So that when Christ returns in glory, we will hear the upward call of God in Christ Jesus His Son, and we will be caught up, and we “will appear with Him in glory.”

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
