Seek what is above!

If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God.
Colossians 3:1.

Seek what is above!
On our conversion we underwent a positional change. We no longer belong to the godless world surrounding us, but stand in a relationship to the sphere of heaven. The apostle Paul refers to this fundamental change that God has brought about: “If then you were raised with Christ …”

The word “if” does not indicate a possibility that may be true or untrue. Paul presents our Christian standing in connection with this new sphere as a definite fact, so that practical effects can result from it in our daily life. He continues therefore: “Seek those things which are above, where Christ is.” We must orientate our inner being according to the sphere of heaven, so that it influences the way we lead our life.

Christ at God’s right hand is the central and focal point of heaven, on whom we need to fix our eyes by faith, for He deserves all our attention.

If Christ in heaven has our affection, we shall desire to live on earth as pleases Him. Instead of following worldly opinions in matters of this life, we shall ask the Lord Jesus what His thoughts on the subject are. On the one hand we find basic directions in the Bible for our Christian life. On the other, being dependent on the Lord, we discover how He wishes to guide us in individual instances.

Today's reading: Exodus 14:15-31 · Luke 6:31-38

FASTING IS NECESSARY

To relate with the Holy Spirit, you must be holy. You must also exercise a living faith, pray and fast. Some people will tell you that because had finished the work of salvation, there is no need to fast. To them, fasting is completely needless and is some form of self-inflicted punishment. But they forget that...More
