Christians are to set their minds on their union with Christ, living in the new life they have in Him, and hoping for Christ’s glorious return.
Who were we before we were saved? We were the walking dead; physically alive but spiritually dead in our sins. But through faith in Christ we became united with Christ, so that when he was buried, we were buried with him in our sins, and when he was resurrected from the dead, so too were we and made spiritually alive, and when he ascended to reign at the right hand of the Father, so too were we seated with Him, to reign with him. Now that we are united to Christ who is in heaven, Paul encourages us to set our minds on the things of heaven, not on earth. We are to meditate on Christ’s character and his commands, to bring heaven down to earth.
