‘Since then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set you’re your minds on things above not on earthly things. For you have died and your life is now hidden with Christ in God” Colossian’s 3:1-3

This passage is amazing. Firstly, it tells us our position in Christ. We are seated with Him in heavenly places. That’s mind boggling in itself. Its simply because we have been put in in Christ. Its all His doing and had nothing to do with us. The question is do we believe it. Because that’s true we are to set both our hearts and minds on Christ like a compass. The needle on the compass will always point North. It can’t help it. So, it is with our hearts and minds. They are always directed towards Christ, although we have to train them to do so. For we have died. The old man, the old Adam, the old sinful us which always went astray has died Our hearts and minds are now directed North like a compass needle. Our life is hidden with Christ in God. Sometimes our hearts and minds try to go another direction but they are pulled back like a magnet back to North (Christ) because Christ lives in us by the power of the Holy Spirit. This is where the battle rages at times because the old man raises its self-up and tries to pull us away. Mediate on this passage until it becomes real and our hearts and minds will more and more quickly and easily swing back to North.
