Miami Journal – Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Today in my morning Bible reading I came to one to my favorite passages.

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated on the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Colossians 3:1-4

Every sentence, every phrase, is full of powerful insight into spiritual reality.

What does it mean to set my heart on things above?
What does it mean that my life is hidden with Christ in God?
What does it mean to say that Christ is my life?
That we will appear with Christ in glory is beyond human comprehension but is the transcendent reality that lies ahead for every believer.
