[QTVOTD] How often do you use a landline?

“IF THEN you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God, and set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.” Colossians 3:1-2 ->me: In Col 2.20 Paul says we ‘died with Christ’ and here in 3:1 he says that we are ‘raised with Christ’. ‘Died’ represents the act of leaving everything behind (which is the case if we are truly saved). ‘Raised’ represents looking forward and not back -> putting hope, worth, and pursuit on things in heaven…in eternity. When we loose ourselves from the earthly things and focus on the heavenly things, we find ourselves focusing on what we can do for others while we are here since we can’t take any earthly riches with us -> the worth of earthly treasures is the landline phone when I received my smart phone…I don’t go anywhere without my smart phone.
