If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
Herein lies the call for us to live up to the fullness of our calling in Christ. This is the lofty tune to which the new creation has been called to dance to. It is a song that seeks to elevate the desires of the child of God to the rarified plane of divine treasures found only in Christ. The Word says – seek; pursue the heavenly vision that portrays Christ seated and we in Him!
It is a call to lift ourselves above the mundane humdrum theme of this life and place our efforts on the thoroughfare to achieving the loftier heavenly goals in the kingdom and Lordship of Jesus. It is a call to walk heavenly minded and have earthly impact. It is a call to live up to the fullness of the call in Christ.
Are your affections set on things above?
Is the Kingdom and Lordship of Jesus your pursuit?
Is the will of Papa God your purpose in this life?
Are you making your election and calling sure in Christ?
You must! If indeed you are born again, then you must reckon the reality of your new station and pursue to full apprehension all of Christ. Let as many that reckon the reality of this new life in Christ make it their objective to live this earthly sojourn anchored by this truth.
“O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;” Psalms 63:1
