Colossians 3:1-3 “Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.”
I remember my fifth grade teacher, Mr. Blakely. He was a great teacher and a righteous follower of Christ.
Mr. Blakely had a way of lecturing the class, and just when your mind was drifting to other things outside the classroom, he would snap you back to attention. How? That was his talent. He possessed a myriad of methods. Everything from dropping books, scraping the chalk board, turning on and off the classroom lights, and, yes, even calling out your name.
It’s not easy to keep your attention on the things of Heaven when you live, breathe, and walk on the Earth.
Today, pair up with a friend, and make a deal to hold each other accountable. If nothing else, be the reminder about attention to the realities of Heaven. It may just simply be a word about prayer or maybe something God did for you today. Regardless, it will cause you to focus on the things of heaven.
Have a blessed day.
