The Mind of Heaven

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

If ye, then, be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth at the right hand of God. Mind the things above, not the things on the earth; for ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God (Colossians 3:1-3).

The system of things on the earth is the subject of the long-suffering and forbearance of God. How needful for us thus to be heavenly-minded, and to bear with it as God does; not avenging ourselves, and showing the same grace towards it that He shows. Here, truly, is the wonderful glory of the mind of heaven – the power to endure.

Put on, therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercy, humbleness of mind, forbearance and longsuffering (Colossians 3:12).

This is the mind of heaven.
