Heart And Mind!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

Colossians 3:1-4

"Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things."

Imagine that we are preparing for a major move from Seattle to Miami. We have sold our house, packed our belongings and are just waiting for the movers to come and start the 3,300 mile trip to a new home that was purchased for us.

Should someone call and offer to take us on a tour of homes in Seattle I am sure we would show very little interest. On the other hand we have collected as much information as possible about the Miami area.

What makes the difference? We have a new home just waiting for our arrival. We have never seen this home, but the person who purchased it in our behalf, has given us a clear description of the home and community. Why should we preoccupy our thoughts with Seattle when Miami is going to be our new home?

Are you getting the spiritual application here? Paul is urging us to stop paying so much attention to the things of this world and start spending more time with our hearts tuned in to heaven. Those of us who have truly been born again are on the way to our new home that the Lord has prepared for us—heaven! What a wonderful place that will be!

There is no pain, turmoil or trial in our life that does not fade into nothingness when compared to the glories of heaven. That is why we need to follow the admonitions Paul gives us in today’s Scripture: "Set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." Where is your heart and mind?

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
