“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. ~Colossians 3:1-4 (emphasis added)
I think Paul meant for that to be more than just a “saying!”
I love this little story – hope you do too! – Pastor Scott
Having lived in South America as missionaries, my family and I realized that moving to another jungle location meant a lot of work. We knew the discomforts of such things as snakes and bugs.
One morning, a few days after beginning to clean our temporary home, the family and I were taking a short break. While we were drinking tea, a large black beetle suddenly flew through the room with a loud buzzing noise. As it darted between us, my wife let out a startled scream.
Astonished more by her scream than the beetle, my youngest daughter cried out, “For heaven’s sake, Mom!”
My wife resolutely replied, “That’s the only reason I’m here.”Daily Bread ~May 1996
