A Brand New Life, part II
NIV Colossians 3:1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Wow. A brand new life. Since I was (past tense) raised with Christ, then I have two action steps. First, set my heart on things above (where Christ is) and set my mind on things above (on Christ again). Since I have died, this new life in Christ (the author of life) is ke,kruptai hidden, kept secret, concealed, until the appointed time that He chooses to reveal His glory. Hence, the name of this ministry. Therefore, my role is pretty plain. I have died. Christ, then, is my life. I just need to be determined to set my heart and mind on Christ, the things above. Far above quotas, bills, car repairs, etc., a whole host of earthly things that seem to consume my heart and mind...Help me, Lord, Help me!!
But, knowing that He will appear when He is ready, I say, Marana qa "O' Lord, Come!"
