Read Colossians 3:1-4
You have been raised to life with Christ, so set your hearts on the things that are in heaven, where Christ sits on his throne at the right-hand side of God. 2Keep your minds fixed on things there, not on things here on earth. 3For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4Your real life is Christ and when he appears, then you too will appear with him and share his glory!
Believing in the resurrection changes our focus. We know that we too will be raised to life at the last day – and we will share eternity with Jesus. We need to let this hope shape our understanding of life as we know it. Our priorities need to be tempered by the knowledge of eternal life.
God, my eyes are so firmly fixed on the things of this earth; help me to fix them on resurrection, on you. And let me live my life hoping in you.
