Word of the Day... December 27, 2012



Living the New Life
Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. Colossians 3:1-2


When I think of trying to keep my eyes on heaven it can be difficult because I can only imagine what it will be like there.  We will be replacing the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree with the radiant brilliance of the very Creator of light.  Instead of the porcelain angels that we have on the tree heaven will hosts of real angels holy, powerful and filled with the joy of the Lord.  On earth there is war and strife.  Everyone is trying to scratch out a living so they can be happy.  In heaven there will be perfect harmony and peace. On earth there is friction and competition between family and friends.  In heaven there will be perfect fellowship and feasting! 


The splendor and magnificence of heaven came to our earth that night the angels spread the curtain to appear to the shepherds. Though we as Christians in our time may never experience what they did, something supernatural happens to every single Christian when we worship the Lord Jesus.  When we worship, our focus is on the Lord and when we are in that place of worship we are actually occupy a part of heaven.


In other words as long as we set our mind on Jesus Christ and the joys of Heaven, some of that joy will touch us here on earth.  Even though there is so much to fear here, we need to remember what the angels told us “Don’t be afraid” (Luke 2:10).  Even though there is war, terrorism, a bad economy and so many other things that can cause us to tremble in fear, we need to keep our eyes on the Lord Jesus.  He is enough to meet all of our needs.


I hope that all of you have a Simply Heavenly day and may God bless you!!!
