Personal testimonies from real Christians all over the world.
“A verse that has really been a focus in my life the last couple of weeks is what is written in Colossians 3:2-3: ‘Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden in Christ ...’
It became such a need that I must be focused on my heavenly calling. Will what I do or say bring me closer to heaven, or is it driving me further away? By setting my mind on things above, I learn to find the things that have eternal value, and begin to despise everything that is of the earth.
This has really helped me in times where I had to make a small decision about what I should do ‘now.’ Should I go and do what I like doing and ‘live for myself,’ or should I give my life and bless the others? By being awake and faithful today in the small situations, my senses get exercised, and I can see more of how I can set my mind on the things above.” Jonathan (South Africa) #ActiveChristianity
