Thoughts by Pastor Brad...

Colossians 3:1-3 says; “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.  Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.  For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”  Paul claims that we already are seated in heavenly places in Christ!  If God has redeemed humanity through the sacrifice of Jesus, then we are all in heaven in Christ!  What’s that really mean?  It means that God has accomplished our salvation and wants us to open that gift by faith.  We must live out on this earth who we are in Christ in heaven through lives of surrender.  God is calling us to set our minds on the perfect things of heaven shown in the life of Jesus.  Praise the Lord for our place in Christ and set your mind on those righteous things today for His glory.
