WORD& POWER for TODAY, Tues., 25th of Feb., 2020.
DON'T EVER TRADE HEAVEN FOR EARTH
“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3:2 KJV
If I want to misinform you, I’d interprete the verse above to mean that you should not desire to have any thing on earth, just focus on Heaven alone and on things that are there. Don’t own a home, don’t buy a car, don’t build a house, own nothing at all. But to say the truth, that would have been heretic. That would have been an erroneous teaching, even if it sounds great to hear.
Read from verse one to six: “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. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. 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.” Colossians 3:1-6 KJV. It is sinful deeds on the earth, that he said we should not engage in.
In other words, he was saying if you are a citizen of Heaven, live on earth as one. Don’t indulge in sinful acts like those who are not believers in Jesus. Your conducts and desires should be heavenly, not sinful. Crave Heavenly things. Focus on heavenly rewards and comforts, while you do your businesses here on earth. In life, succeed, but not at the expense of your position in Heaven. Be in full control of your body, and desires …as long as you are on earth. Make sure you dont trade your heaven for earth.
