Ever feel like your life is just skating in circles?
The drudgery of the same old routines can make life seem like that. With an earthbound perspective, life really is little more than skating in circles. The repetitive cycles of infancy, adolescence, and old age; work, rest, and more work; marriage, children, and grandchildren; diapers and dishes; progress and regress can seem awfully ordinary and terribly tedious.
God, however, does not want us simply to endure the tedium. Our ordinary activities can be infused with spiritual significance. Paul calls us to a bigger picture, a higher perspective in Colossians 3. He calls us to look as high as the heavens to gain perspective for our earthly endeavors.
Today’s message entitled “The Foundation for Christian Living” comes from Colossians 3:1-4 where we are given two exhortations reinforced by three foundational truths.
Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.
