A New Self: Part 1

Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. Colossians 3:1-2 NLT

Sometimes, we forget how lucky we are to have a savior like Jesus. It is easy to get wrapped up in the things of this world. Material things are hear for a reason, for us to enjoy. 

We should always give thanks for the blessings we receive and never let them be a distraction to our relationship with Jesus. We should never put anything above God. We are not of this world, we are to set our eyes towards the reality of Heaven.

For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory. Colossians 3:3-4 NLT

When we die and are born again in Christ, we are changed. We are set apart from the world. Our new life is hidden in Christ and it is revealed to others. Jesus was tortured and crucified to that we may have hope and he rose again to prolong that hope. All Glory be to God.
