Settled Affection Upward Where Christ Is Sited

Settled Affection Upward Where Christ Is Sited

If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.(Colossians 3:1,2)

 

Who is this our startup verses of Scripture referring to? It is referring to the saints of God, the believers in the LORD; the saved, the just, the beloved of the LORD that has been born again.

It is a combination of verses of scriptures, so powerful, penetrating, and inspiring that one should not read , or go through it in hurry. And of course reading the Bible or reading books of the Bible is good,’ but yet these kind of scriptures brings you and I into the resurrection life that we’ve been given in Christ Jesus.

Look at the condition attached to it. It says: If truly you’ve been risen, raised up, or resurrected with Christ, it means you should be precisely where He is at the moment. Let’s consider it once again.

If you are risen with Christ, seek those things which are above where Christ sits at the right hand of God. That is referring to you and I.

Question Worthy of Answer

The question is have you risen or raised up with Christ, or have you resurrected with the LORD Jesus Christ? Yes, should be your answer as a child of God; and of course this may not fir into some persons religion, but seriously as children of the Most High God, we’ve been raised up, or resurrected with Christ Jesus.

We’re risen together with Jesus Christ of Nazareth. When He was nailed to the cross, we were nailed to the cross with Him. When Jesus died on the cross we died with Him. When He was buried, we were buried together with Him. So also, on the third day when God resurrected Him from the grave, we were raised up, or resurrected with Him.

Spiritual Injunction

It says: Seek those things which are above where Christ is sited on the right hand of God. The word seek is actually an action word. It means to be in pursuit of, or to be in search of something. It also means to scrutinize or investigate something.

In other words to uncover what needs to be uncovered. It also means to be in favour, or to be in agreement with, or in consonant with something, and hence in this scenario; the Kingdom of God, and thus those things that are therein, inherent in the kingdom of the Most High God!

It is becomes your responsibility, and that of mine, to become a person that is practically, committedly; diligently and lovingly with persistency, in favour of the good, and well being of God’s Kingdom on earth. In fact being consistent or persistent is it, and we must never forget that!

Things Of Heaven

What are these things that the Scripture says, are above? These must be God divine plans and purpose, and hence necessarily His divine will or purpose for humanity. But then it only becomes accessible to he that is born again through the Holy Spirit.

God’s divine will of a necessity is inclusive in what is above where Christ is sited. They represent things of heaven, in the heavenly.

It is a place of heavenly positioning; a place of glory, honour and power, where God’s truth in the similitude, or in the likeness of mysteries or revelations from on high, are revealed, and sometimes spoken to you through the Holy Spirit

As a child of God, we must come to the knowledge of this and conduct yourself in its consciousness or in its revelation. Be dedicated to God’s Word. Never take the revelation of God’s Word for granted. God has mysteries and secrets that are above where Christ is sited in the heavenly.

The Word says: The secret things belongs to the Lord our God but those things that are revealed belongs to us and to our children that we may do the covenant. (Deuteronomy 29>29)

You see, really you and I, we are physically on earth, and that is because of our physical personalities; but in the realm of the Spirit we are sited together with Christ.

We resides in the secret pace of God in the realm o the heavenly, and the real of God’s DIVINITY. Our lives are, wrapped up in the Holy Spirit. It is a mysterious kind of life, and that ‘s why God has given us the fruits of the Spirit for us to live by, and to activate those virtues therein as occasions demands or requires. God is a faithful God, and His faithfulness ensure forever.

Personal Aspect.

Recognize that you belongs to Jesus Christ and you are no longer your personal self, but now God’s temple, and hence God property. You’ve become God’s living temple, His holy place of worship. Go d through Christ has therefore become your center of gravity.

Be in pursuit, primarily of the Kingdom and His righteousness. Let God count on you as you confide in Him trust Him, be intimate with Him, honour His counsel hold on to His Word and practice His biddings. God will never disappoint you. Your hopes and expectations shall come to real, and tangible manifestation.

There are those that may doubt you or don’t believe you. You don’t bother about those, They did it to Jesus Christ. You keep looking unto Jesus the Author the developer and the perfecter of your faith. That refers to your persuasion, believe system or value system.

Serve God rightly, dedicatedlly and acceptably. His thoughts towards you are thought of peace, good thoughts, and great thoughts to see to it that you attain to where He desires for you.

Set your affinity, your carvings m and you total affections upon divine things. Let your spiritual attention be upon heavenly things, the things of heaven.

There is a higher, greater and upper world of God’s glory, honour and blessings. Don’t let go of the things of heaven. That is where you belong as a child of the living God.

You are a product of DIVINTY; a products of God’s incorruptible Word It is a holy fraternity, a divine union that you may be able to conduct yourself as you should on earth through total and constant trust in God and, in His dictates.

The Word says:

”One thing I have desired of the LORD, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple. Psalm 27:4; (Psalm 23:1-6)

Don’t be in pursuit of carnal or fleshly things; but of true spirituality. (Romans 8: 5-8) Be in genuine and authentic pursuit of the things that matters to God, and also to Jesus Christ as led through the Holy Spirit.

God’s desire is that you live that blessed, honours and glorifies His holy name. A life of truth, honour, integrity and dignity, through His Word and through the Holy Spirit. It us up to you though, and that is reason why you should give yourself constantly, more and more into the service of God!

From personal experiences and encounters, based on the truth and based on the integrity of God’s Word, God will honour you, and bless you more than you can ever ask Him for, or imagine. (Ephesians 3:20) He, God, the Holy One of Israel is forever trustworthy and dependable!

JEHOVAH is His name! Blessed be God! JESUS CHRIST IS LORD. Hallelujah!
