Colossians 3:1-2 (NKJV)
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.

Tracy was living in Rwanda as an aid worker from the United States. Because she came from America and her family was still in America, her heart was more set on the things going on in America than the things going on in Rwanda. Even though she was very aware of what was going on in Rwanda, It was very clear that her heart was still at home. For example, she watched more American news than Rwandan news. She did her productive work in Rwanda but her heart was set at home. She was simply a pilgrim and ambassador in Rwanda and she knew it.

Before we were raised with Christ, we were first dead in our sins. It is because of our sins that Jesus had to die, and in Him we all died. We were also buried with Him through [water] baptism (Col 2:12a, Rom 6:5). Through faith in the power of God, we are raised with Christ and now live the life of Christ (Col 2:12b). The perfection of our resurrection will be revealed when we are physically raised with our glorious bodies (see Col 3:3).

If indeed we live the life of Christ who is in heaven, we must think His thoughts. We must set our hearts on things above and not on earthly things.

This does not mean we will not live productive lives here on earth. It means we are pilgrims and strangers on this earth, and we live here with that mindset, while being productive and diligent in serving the Lord through our various ministries: jobs, businesses, occupations, etc.

Go into today remembering that your citizenship is in heaven. You are not of this world. You’ve been empowered to shine and not to blend.
