are you serious

So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ – that is where the action is. See things from his perspective. Colossians 3:1-2

So…are you serious?

Are you pursuing Christ things or other things?

Where are you looking?

Do circumstances speak louder than Him?

A pastor from church called on to talk about some counsel we are doing with another. I asked if I could get some counsel for myself and in her prayer was much of this from my reading earlier.

LOOK UP – see HIS perspective.

Even my journal note: Think with the Spirit not with the mind.

  1. I try so hard to be serious…but then those circumstances start screaming. I pursue Christ, then I get distracted by those other things. It’s a constant battle.

    • And sometimes that battle isn’t flesh and blood. I use the “take all thoughts captive to Christ” sword – it’s working better. I pray the voice of those circumstances is quieted so HE can be heard loudly Jeff.
