Heavenly Mindedness Is Needed On Earth

Colossians 3:2,
"Set your affection on things above, not on things               on the earth. "

John 14:6,
"Yeshua saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

Have you ever heard the old saying, "Don't be so Heavenly minded that you are no Earthly good?"  I'm challenging that statement today.  Keeping your mind on Heaven is vital and we need to be looking earnestly in our lives right now at   our future eternal home which has been promised to us in Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  

When Yeshua was on earth, His whole Earthly focus was   on Heaven.  Keep in mind that Yeshua is our great example   and our blessed teacher.  Yeshua taught us everything we need to know in order to be received into His Heavenly Kingdom.   In studying His Word, one of the greatest truths He shared was that we were supposed to keep our minds   on that wonderful prize ahead of us, our eternal home, Heaven.  

We have a purpose for being here, of course.     Unfortunately, we often get tied up in knots by the Earthly world around us.  The Messiah's spiritual Kingdom is within us right now for sure.  However, His future Kingdom is also seated in Heavenly places and is something we are told to dwell on.  Yeshua's future home for us beckons us daily and we need to understand that it truly is our future destination. 

Glory to God in the Highest!  Let me ask you though.     Where is your heart today?  Is your affection here in this world on something, or someone, who will perish?  I pity   you if that is the case.   Choose life, not death.  You need to place your affections on things above.  All of us need to become really Heavenly minded right now, today, in order to fortify our spiritual lives.  Perhaps we can truly do some work that will pay off  eternally?  Heavenly mindedness is actually a vital key in whether a person will be profitable,   or not profitable, in doing God's work.

Throughout His days here on earth, Yeshua was actually more focused on Heaven than anyone else in scripture.   Also, keep in mind, He clearly did the greatest job of ministering to people in all of history.  So saying that we   will be no earthly good by thinking continually on Heaven doesn't really make sense.  Was the Lord too Heavenly minded?   I don't think so.  In fact, it seems that being 'Heavenly minded' is a key in effective living, and is also vital in ministering for Yeshua the Messiah.    

So here's the heart of the matter.  Yeshua was practicing the presence of God by spending time with His Heavenly Father.  His Heavenly Abba was always in His thoughts and in the forefront of His mind.   It was, and is, a relationship that rose, and is risen, above all else.  The Father and Son were 'echad'; they were joined as 'one'.  They were, and   are, inseparable.  Yesterday, today and forever is the essence of the bond between the Father and Yeshua the Messiah.  Yeshua spoke of this wonderful relationship He enjoyed with the Father by attaching Himself to Him at all times.  The Lord then invited all of mankind to do the same. We are invited to be part of His Kingdom now and forever. We were given the keys of entering into eternity, and fellowship with God on this planet, during our lives on   Earth.  It does us well to focus on this truth often!  

Scripture tells us also that though our Messiah was constantly being sought after, He always made the time to commune, and communicate with Father God.   Therefore, when our Lord was practicing being 'Heavenly minded', he wasn't doing it in theory but in actual fact.  The Lord was also introducing those who follow Him into a realization   that they were going to be eventually living in a place that   is indescribable.  This glorious promise, which is eternal, forever, we now look forward to with great expectation and patience.  It is so worth it.  

The great hope we share today is totally wrapped up in trusting the Mashiach, the Messiah of Israel.  We are grounded in this life with the trust we have in His death, burial, and resurrection.  We are truly seated in Heavenly places, now and forever more!   Let us dwell on these truths continually!

1 Corinthians 2:9,
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."
