Set your mind on things above

Colossians 3: 1-10

Thought for the Day: "If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth." (Colossians 3: 1-2)

I was 31 years old when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior. My journey as a born-again believer began and continues to this day. Believing in and accepting Jesus is the easy part. Being obedient to Him, following His commandments is a lifelong commitment that is not struggle-free.

Set your minds on things above -- love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control. (Galatians 5: 22-23) Not on things on the earth -- uncleanness, evil desires, idolatry, anger, filthy language, malice, lying, hatred, jealousies, selfish ambition, envy. (for more, see Colossians 3: 5 and 8 and Galatians 5: 19-21)

To shed yourself of worldly living, immerse yourself in Bible study. The book of Mark is a good place to start. Joining a Bible-believing church is recommended. If you don't know which one would be best, but you do know someone who regularly attends, ask if you can go with them. Join a Sunday school class. Ask questions. Be open to learning and listening as the Holy Spirit speaks to you.

Prayer: Dear Lord, Keep me mindful of you and the Truth you alone bear. Help me to rid myself of all that is evil - in myself and in the world around me, and live only for you. In your name I pray. Amen.


  1. Visit for an anointed study of the Bible by Zac Poonen.

  2. Just what I've been looking for, thanks!

  3. Thank you. Just remember that Jesus said prey as ya have received and give thanks. Never make a begge out of the prayer thus God before we ask he already answered. Robert.
