(KJV.) COLOSSIANS 3:2-4
(2) Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
(3) For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
(4) When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
WORTHLESS AND POINTLESS
Brethren, since we have being crucified, dead, buried and risen up again with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; let us seek after things pertaining to our final destinies, concentrate our attentions on where we are going to reside forever with Jesus Christ, never allow vanities of this world distract or disrupt, pathways to where we are going to live after this life.
Though our Father blesses his children with earthly possessions to enjoy; let us not focus on our blessings alone, but acknowledge facts that we are blessed of the LORD, praise, worship and give him all the glory; our Father blessed King Solomon, the preacher with wisdom, wealth, riches of this world, King Solomon finally said; .....vanity of vanities; all is vanity. (Eccl.1-2); if we focus on enjoying blessings of our Father, cast Jesus Christ out of our lives, watch out for him to show up at the end of our journeys on earth to usher us either into damnation or eternity; choices are ours to make while still enjoying ourselves on earth.
Believers, we were dead in Christ, to be dead in Christ is to accept facts that our old selves are dead, our true selves are now within his resurrected body with our Father; therefore, though we live on this earth, our spirits already have access to heavenly places and someday, Jesus Christ, who is our source of lives, will show up in the firmament of glory, all eyes will see his glory, and believers will reconcile with him, and partake of his inheritance forevermore.
Dearly beloved, regardless of how we struggle to gain wealth and riches of this world, if we do not accept Jesus Christ into our hearts as Lord and Savior, walk in his righteousness, trust and believe in him; someday, when we sleep in death, our possessions will not be able to save our souls from damnation, matter of facts, those earthly possessions will corrode with the wind after we pass on; therefore, let us seek first the kingdom of heaven, his righteousness, all things of heaven and earth will be ours forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
