What Are Your Affections Set On?

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.~ Colossians 3:1-2

Are the majority of your thoughts and desires centered on the things of this earth? Such as: material possessions, recreational activities, jobs or careers, politics, friends, family or physical fitness. You get the idea. What are your affections set on?

If you are truly risen with Christ, your affections should be set on things above.


Because that is where HE is at!

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. ~ Colossians 3:17

Whatever we do is to be done for the glory of God.

What Are You Listening To?

"A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue."~Proverbs 17:4

A 'naughty tongue' has the meaning of one who seeks to work ruin or is mischievous, such as a talebearer or slanderer. However, you will notice that the one who 'listens' to this type of speech is called a 'liar' and lying is an abomination unto the Lord.(Proverbs 12:22)

"Oh, be careful little ears what you hear."

"Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors."~Psalm 119:24

I've often heard it said, that there is 'nothing' which pertains to our lives that God has not covered in His holy written word, the Bible. Amen!

Are you in need of marriage counseling? Read the Word.

Maybe you'd like more wisdom for parenting? Read the Word.

Are you having financial problems? Yep, it's in there.

The more you study the Bible, the more you'll see just how loving God is and how much He wants to 'counsel' us as we go along in this life.

Truly, He's covered it all for us. So... READ THE WORD!
