Set Your Mind on Things Above - Not on Earthly Things

  1. 1. Set Your Mind on Things Above ~ not on earthly things ~ Colossians 3:2 Margaret Lepke presents… www.DrLepke.com.au ~ www.BiblicalPublications.org
  2. 2. How Heavenly Minded Are You in Your Everyday Life
  3. 3. BUT WHAT ABOUT YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE? • Where is your FOCUS? • What gives you JOY? • Where are you doing your BANKING? • What are you PASSIONATE about? Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things! We often sing… When we all get to heaven – what a wonderful day that will be!
  4. 4. Where Is Your Focus? I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:3 Jesus said:
  5. 5. The Apostle Paul’s Focus Toward the end of his life, Paul said to Timothy (2 Tim. 4:6-8): …the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
  6. 6. What Gives You JOY? Nehemiah 8:10 The joy of the LORD is your strength.
  7. 7. The Bible Says… Joy is the fruit of the Spirit The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness… Gal 5:22 Joy comes from investing spiritually in other people Indeed, you are our glory and joy. 1Thess 2:20 Joy can be had in the midst of suffering ...you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. 1Thess 1:6 Future joy should motivate our present actions …fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb. 12:2
  8. 8. Think About… A time when you were filled with joy by the Holy Spirit
  9. 9. Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Where Are You Doing Your Banking? Jesus said: (Matthew 6:19-21)
  10. 10. 1 Timothy 6:17-19 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life. God Tells Us to Bank in Heaven
  11. 11. Banking in Heaven is Determined by Motive 1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do… Do it all for the glory of God. It’s the motive that counts!
  12. 12. What Are You Passionate About? Jesus said in Luke 10:27 Love the Lord your God… • with all your heart and • with all your soul and • with all your strength and • with all your mind. Love your neighbour as yourself.
