“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3:2
When we say, “LORD, let Your Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven,” what does that really mean?
How can we live “kingdom-minded” on this fragile soil while continuing to pray — and work — for spiritual fruits such as peace and love?
As children of the light, you and I are meant to shine so brightly that darkness is pushed back, even if it’s a tiny bit. When we do that, heaven kisses earth.
We Are All Called!
Whether we work as mothers or movers, contractors or cooks, when we serve diligently in the place God has set us, we are freedom-fighters.
We plant seeds of hope with each action, interaction, and reaction.
“Faith can … be the spiritual energy that enables the transformations for which our world so desperately hungers,”
says Jim Wallis of Faith Works.
We are part of a royal priesthood, and our sphere of influence is our place of outreach. With the Spirit’s help, you and I can bring God’s kingdom to earth in so many ways!
We can create a redemptive piece of art, perform thankless tasks with a joyful spirit, and respond to insults or slights with forgiveness.
We can seek help for our own shortcomings and blindness from those serving under the Wing of the Holy Spirit, the Counselor and Comforter.
When our darkness is the veil of shame or fear, let us tear it away and turn our faces with eyes wide open towards the Light that has come to break the tentacles of bondage.
Heaven kisses us, on earth when we surrender humbly…
…To the help that was sent in a humble form.
“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts, your sight on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Focus your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:1-2
