Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:2-3 (NKJV)
The moment we gave our life to Jesus we have died to our old self, and as born again followers of Christ we have received a new identity, a new life that is now hidden in Him. In order for us to live out of who we are in Christ, we are called to set our thoughts on the things above. We are called to contemplate heavenly realities by filling our hearts and minds with the Word of God. It is this daily renewing of the mind in the Word that makes us open, receptive and available to everything that has become true about us in Christ. It enables the wholeness, the peace of mind, the joy, fulfillment and provision that is hidden in Him to become manifest as the day to day realities of our life.
