Colossians 3:1-4 –3 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.
Most all of us do it to a certain degree. Show me someone that gives all he can afford and I’ll show you someone that has put his heart and faith in God.
What degree have we set towards Him? There’s a test. I’ll give you a hint. The test isn’t to see how much we can make and spend on ourselves. That’s not the “A” in which God is looking to give. God wants to see what choices you will make with your responsibility. It works that way for both our time and resources.
Tell Him that you love Him, or show Him that you love Him. Actually both are better than just one. He wants us to love one another. Why? One, God is love. He loves us even when we’re not lovable. That’s what He wants us to do. He wants us to be the same as Him in this area. Does it come naturally in with this sinful nature we have inherited? Not for me. My love for others, who are challenging, comes from God.
Let’s keep our eye on the prize.
