Examples of the Kingdom

Colossians 3: 1-2

“Since you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

Paul asks that the Colossians concentrate on eternal things, the things of God, rather than earthly things.  If you read further in chapter 3, you will discover that the Colossians had a whole list of “earthly things” that occupied their time.  

As a people of faith, we live in the world, but we are not of the world.  We belong to the Kingdom of God, a kingdom in which love, and mercy and forgiveness reign.  Our lives are to be an example of this kingdom to the rest of the world.

May the love of Christ be with you,

Rev. Eric Lanier
