Colossians 3:1-2 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, and not on things on the earth.
The main problem with Christianity today is that we do not think enough about Heaven. Most modern preachers preach more on coping with earthly cares and fixing problems we bring on ourselves because we do not follow the Bible and the guidense of the Holy Spirit in the first place. Many are preaching a prosperity”gospel” of get it all down here. Christ promised us tribulation and persecution in this life. While God certainly blesses and even gives great wealth to some, many Christians are given the blessing of poverty and martyrdom in this life. The blessings we seek should be those that can only be attained in Heaven. Christ is in Heaven, your ETERNAL reward is in Heaven, and your home is in Heaven. Heaven is as wonderful as Hell is horrible. Will you be obedient to this command? In my next devotion I will show from the Bible that the believer does indeed go to Heaven as many teach that something else happens to the soul of the departed. The Apostle Paul said not to be ignorant about those that sleep in Christ and I believe this will be a blessing to you.
