Things Above & Things on Earth

blog tombb796a201f64ff34f04fe09f604ff0ae4--easter-crafts-crafts-for-kids“If ye then be risen with Christ,

seek those things which are above,

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

Set your affection on things above,

not on things on the earth.”

 Colossians 3:1-2.

Seek those things…above:

“Put on the new man,

which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him…

Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any; even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

And above all these things put on charity,

which is the bond of perfectness.”

Colossians 3:10,12-14.

not on things on the earth:

“Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth;

fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.” Colossians 3:5-7.

“And whatsoever ye do,

do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

Knowing that of the Lord

ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance:

for ye serve the Lord Christ.”

Colossians 3:23,24.

Only two things to choose from: Things above or things of earth. Be careful what you choose.
