One of the primary biblical disciplines that we sow into the hearts and minds of the young evangelists we equip is to live every single day in light of eternity.
In Colossians 3:1-2, Paul writes: “If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”
Contrary to cultural cliches, to be “heavenly minded” IS of “earthly good”! Not only does living every day in light of eternity give us the unshakable hope of glory, but it will also move us out of small, selfish thinking into the biggest picture possible when we have fears of sharing our faith!
In this video, my favorite Gospel preacher reinforces this priority in the way that only Paul Washer can.
As strangers of this world on exile toward our heavenly home, let’s purpose in our hearts and minds to set our affections not on this life but on the life to come…every day!
For His Glory,
