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 (KJV)
We are risen with Christ. This is describing the spiritual reality of every born again believer. Through union with the Holy Spirit, our inner person, our spirit, has been born again. Spiritually speaking we have passed from death to life. Now in order for us to live out of who we are in Christ—spiritually alive, blessed, redeemed, equipped, empowered and anointed—we must make a shift in our thinking. The Bible tells us we must set our affection on the things above, not on the things of the earth. In other words, we must begin to contemplate heavenly things rather than earthly things. And so let us reflect on and meditate on the Word of God rather than the word of man. Meditating on the Word is what allows it to take root in our hearts. And once we have the Word in our hearts, we may rest assured that it will yield a rich harvest in our lives.
