Topic: Things Above [Sunday, 29th Jan. 2017]
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Colossians 3:1
It is very important, after you have been saved, for you to follow through your salvation with things that will aid your walk with Christ. God is not interested in half-hearted commitments. He needs our all and demands our all because He gave His all to save us from the wages of sin which is death.
So, Apostle Paul admonishes us that since we are risen with Christ into newness of life, we should seek those things which are above, where Christ dwells. What is/are the thing(s) above that we need to seek. Jesus, while teaching His disciples to pray, said: “thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). That means, what we should seek is the will of God to be done on earth, as it is in Heaven. Heaven is where Jesus is, and we are to seek the things where Jesus is.
The will of God is the plan, intention, thought, wisdom, word of God. These are the things we should seek. Seek Gods plans for You. Go after God’s intentions and thoughts for you. For His thought towards you are of peace, to give you a hope and future (Jeremiah 29:11). Seek the things that are above, where Jesus is.
Keep winning daily.
Dear Lord, thank You for Your saving grace that has brought me salvation. By the working of Your Spirit in me, I will seek the things which are above. I will seek Your plans, intentions and thoughts for me always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
