Set Your Affections

on March 8, 2012

“For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.”  Philippians 3:20

When life gets busy it’s so easy to get sidetracked or distracted by things that don’t really matter.  We may spend hours of time pursuing hobbies that in the end will amount to nothing.  We may work ourselves to death trying to pay off things we don’t really need or working to earn more money to buy things we think we want.Too many times our affections are set on the wrong things, and it causes us to distance ourselves from God and our relationship with him.

Realizing how much time and importance you place on things will help to keep you focused on God.  Building a relationship with God doesn’t come as second nature to us.  We must spend time purposefully seeking Him.  When we lay aside the things that distract us in this life and focus on the things above, then we can find true satisfaction in the relationship we have with our Lord.

Today I challenge you to examine your priorities.  Prioritize your time to include the things that really matter.  In the end it’s our relationship with Christ that will truly count.

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.  Set your affection on things above, not on the things on the earth.”  Colossians 3:1-2
