Set Your Mind on Things Above
~ not on earthly things ~
Colossians 3:2
Margaret Lepke presents…
www.DrLepke.com.au ~ www.BiblicalPublications.org
How Heavenly Minded Are You
in Your
Everyday Life
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!
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:
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.
What Gives You JOY?
Nehemiah 8:10
The joy of the LORD is your strength.
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
Think About…
A time when you were filled
with joy by the Holy Spirit
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)
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
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!
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.
Delight Yourself in the Lord
Psalm 37:4
Be Heavenly Minded with a Passion!

Where Are You Doing Your Banking? Jesus said: (Matthew 6:19-21)
  • 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.

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
