Colossians 3:2 ” Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

Here, as well in Philippians 3:19-20, Paul was showing the moral contrast between heaven and earth.  In Philippians he accused the Church of “setting their minds on earthly things”…which was demonstrating the unethical realm of fallen man and the world under the power of sin.  In both occasions, Paul was urging the Church towards holy living…a putting on of their new self under Christ, and a putting off of their old self dictated by the sinful world.  And even today Paul’s message rings loud and clear to all of us…for where our mindset goes, the rest of our body will follow.
