Focus on things above

“Relentlessly Pursue”

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God (Col. 3:2-3)

Father bless pastor Sonny and sister Julie, their family, the Leadership, and V.O.Family.

The Message’s interpretation of today’s verse is crystal clear: “Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ – that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective.”

It is essential for Christians to get their priorities straight. Those things that take up most of your thoughts, will reveal to yourself, as well as to others, where your real interests lie.

What’s really important to you? Before you answer, Think of the things that you prefer to talk about, the things on which you spend most of your time and money.

Helen Keller said that to be able to see, but yet lack vision, is the one thing that is worse than being blind. Determine the things that are important to God, and make sure that you give priority to these things in your thoughts and in your life. Find a clear vision for yourself – know where you are headed and know what the Lord’s dream for you entails. Reflect upon it and do it!

Heavenly Father, please forgive me that those things that are unimportant to you still take priority in my thoughts. Help me to focus my thoughts on those things that are of value to You, to find a vision as a Christian, and to live like Your child every day. Amen.
