When I was in the business world, I followed a simple theory in my career — “work for the job you want, not for the job you have”. The concept was simple. Each day, I made sure I was doing things, saying things, producing results that would get me the next promotion, not keep me in my current position. I discovered that if I had my eyes fixed on the next title, next office, next paycheck, it was easier to obtain. The “bad days at work” were easier to accept if I believed that another job, bigger job was out there for me. Did you know that this we should apply this same theory to our spiritual lives?
In Colossians 3:1-4 Paul writes, “3 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
We should not live our lives for the life we have now, but the life we want to have in Heaven. Strive for a life in Heaven, not a life here on earth.
I pray for blessings today for you on our Journey!
