Colossians 3:1

Colossians 3:1…”Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” Our desires need to be in line with God’s desires. We sin when our desires focus on ourselves and not God, with the root being prideful unbelief and selfishness. We need to look forward to heaven mainly because we’ll finally be with God, in perfect fellowship with him. We are foreigners here, and so our desires need to align with heavenly things because that’s where we’ll be for eternity. Holiness should be something we strongly yearn for in this life, because it will mark our eternal lives. Increasing holiness following salvation is proof we’re one of God’s elect (Romans 8:29-30). Conversely, the bible has a very clear warning for those who accept the gospel message, but bear no Christian fruit: Hebrews 12:14 – “Without holiness no one will see the Lord.”
