Get your mind out the gutter
Colossians 3:1-2 KJV
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.
We understand from scripture that we are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus and also far above all principalities and powers. This is indicative of our position. A man seated on the window seat of an airplane if he looks out the window will see only clouds. This is simply because that is where he is positioned. Our verse today exhorts us that since we are seated with Christ, we should set our affection on heavenly matters and issues. Don’t let your affection be consumed by earthly lusts and its affections. Set your heart on Christlike things. Meditate on truth, peace, love and all other things that are above where you are seated. Always remember you are seated in heavenly places
Thank you Lord for my position. I resolute to think on things that are in line with my location and position in you and not be consumed by the things of the world.
