The psychologists tell us we should look within. The opportunists tell us we should look around. The optimist says we should look ahead. The pessimist says we should look out. But God says we should look up; we should look above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God (Colossians 3:1) . Our mind and heart should be set on heaven, not on earth.
Commentary from Dr. David Jeremiah, What Do You Think Bible study.
I’ll return home one day, but until then, there is so much work that needs to be done.
Many Christians are well-equipped, well-trained, and well-financed. No generation of believers has ever had more tools, more plans, more programs, or been more affluent. But are we really attacking the enemy or advancing the cause? Are we talking to our friends about Christ? Are we witnessing for Him? God has placed us where we are in order to reach those around us, telling them what He has done in our lives-while we are here.
“I tell you when the Spirit of God is on us for service, resting upon us, we are anointed, and then we can do great things.” D. L. Moody
