YOU WERE RAISED WITH JESUS
“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 – Amplified)
When God raised Jesus Christ from the dead He set Him at His right hand in Heaven. He placed Jesus in Authority, giving Him all Power. You too, were raised with Jesus and are seated with Him in Heavenly places. Therefore, you have the power to rule over every negative circumstance in your life.
Now that you have been raised together with Christ, set your heart on things above where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Have a resolved determination to focus your attention only on those things that are of God and that which is spiritual. You have been raised with Jesus to a New Life.
Do not set your affections on that which is earthly. In other words that which is sense ruled. Remember that when you accepted the Lord, you died with Him on the Cross and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. Your Heavenly Father has also raised you with Jesus and your life is now lived from a heavenly perspective rather than an earthly one. You are part of a new race of people, and therefore function and live in a higher life.
