“Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honour at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory. “ Colossians 3:1-4
Thank you for our new life which is hidden in Christ. For we know that our ‘normal’ lives will one day come to an end, but our life with You will go on forever when you come back. Help us to continually seek the life above with Jesus Christ and not to be drawn away. Help us to live out what we have IN CHRIST; our everything! Help our lives to be shaped not by our circumstances or the opinions of others, but by Christ, our hope in life and death.
In Jesus Christ we pray, AMEN.
