In this earthly life, it is easy to get caught up in the chaos and worldliness of what is taking place all around us.
As saints, we need to set our affection and attention on Jesus and pursue His kingdom above all else. The Scriptures are abundantly clear about how we need to set our mind on things above, not things beneath. The writer of Hebrews tells us that as believers, we shouldn't be satisfied with our earthly life, but we should be looking for a city whose builder and maker is God. Jesus even goes as far to say that if we love our life here, then we will lose it, but if we lose our life here, we will find true life.
The church of Christ needs to cleave to Him and set our focus on the reality of being citizens of heaven. Persecution may come, temptation may knock on the doors of our hearts, hardship may strike, but it is all fleeting because we know our true reward is stored up for us in heaven and awaiting us.
Our truest nature if not of this world, but we have been born from above. The Scriptures tell us time and time again that we will be rewarded in this life and the life to come for the decisions we make daily and for following Jesus wholeheartedly and this is of ginormous proportions. We must keep this close to our hearts as we face life's challenges and the temptations that inevitably come.
On the latest episode of Awaken Podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network, Michael Lombardo shares about the power of possessing an eternal mentality. Very few Christians are focused on heaven and the rewards that await us on a daily basis for abiding in God's Word and walking in His Word. If we do, we will find a well of strength and fortitude that we weren't able to tap into previously. Tune in to find out more.
