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.
So easily we lose focus on the most important thing we are to focus on as humans. We easily set our eyes off the eternal value Christ has assured us. When life gets bitter we focus fast on how to get it back on track so things would go good for us again and even when life gets better we still focus on how to make it more and more better for us. Completely we forget the eternal reward and the journey we need to embark on so we would reach there.
Our bible verse above teaches us that as believers we have been risen with Christ and therefore we are to seek for those things which are above where Christ sitteth and thus eternal life. Nothing we do on this earth matters most than focusing on eternal life. When our father in heaven appears for the second time, we won’t take anything we have worked here on earth with us.
Am not asking you to stop working or stop pursing great things here on earth because the bible actually teaches us in 2 Thessalonians 3:10b that If any man would not work, neither should he eat. To be working is important but for our works to distract us from focusing on eternity is more or else like being in a pit of danger.
No matter what we do here on earth, there is an eternal life that awaits us and we have two places to spend this eternal life at. Is either in hell or heaven, and neither of us here will even think of going to hell because is not a place you would even imagine yourself to be at for eternity, there is no joy in hell. So our only option now is Heaven and that’s the place we should focus on spending eternity at.
Ending this piece, I want to inspire you that whatever you do on earth to survive , you should never let it distract you from focusing on having an eternal life in heaven. To have eternal life is to believe in Jesus Christ the son of God. He is eternal life, accept Him, believe in Him and focus on the things He wants you to do so you can ascend with Him to Heaven when He comes back again.
God bless you for reading….Peace💖
