What occupies your thoughts? That’s a challenging question and one we should not ignore. In many ways, we are what we think. The Bible says in Proverbs 23:7, “as a man thinks within himself, so he is.”
If our thoughts are focused on the concerns of this world, we will become like the world. But if our minds are set on the things above—in other words, where Christ is—we’ll become more like Him.
The more aware we are of Jesus, the less we tolerate sin, because we know it doesn’t fit us anymore. Instead of chasing the passing pleasures and goals of our culture, we’ll pursue a lifestyle of obedience to the Lord.
Your beliefs determine your perspective on life, and that shapes your priorities and attitudes.
The point isn’t merely to think about heaven but to think on Christ, who is in heaven. When we do this, changes will start to take place.
