SEEK THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE ABOVE

Colossians 3. 1-4

Paul has been writing to the Colossians about the danger of being taken up with so-called religious observance which is concerned with the physical and visible. He now reminds the believers that our Lord is not visible or tangible to us as He is in heaven. Now, spiritually, we are seen as raised with Him. Not only that, but the true assessment of our life is ‘with Him’. We may not appear to have much, or even be much, in the eyes of men but this is not our true value, our real life. At present, like Him, our life is hidden, but one day He will appear and we also will appear with Him. Then, the hidden things will be revealed and it will be ‘in glory’.

With this in mind, we should not be taken up with this earth-bound life but seek the things which are above, those of permanent value. How different from an ungodly world which often lives only for the next moment. If then we are going to seek the things above, v. 1, we must first set our affections on them, v. 2. The affections will direct the actions. If we want to affect our life or the lives of others we must first address the affections. So often we can be critical or hard on those we feel are living worldly lives. Perhaps, we need to present them with a greater vision of Christ. The attraction of the things above is that He is there. As it is our prospect now, so it will also be our future dwelling place. Should this not thrill us?

The proof of future glory is that He is now ‘on the right hand of God’. Once He was rejected, poor and alone but now He is raised and exalted as the pattern for us. Not only is He there, but we are viewed as being there ‘with Him’ already; it’s a certainty. We know these things but they are hidden to others. However, one day they will also be revealed to all.

We might consider the words of the apostle John, And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever’, 1 John 2. 17. Which world, then, is the ‘real’ world, this one which passes or the one which is above? Everything we really are and have is ‘with Him’ now, our future glory is seen ‘with Him’ and will be seen when we appear ‘with Him’, v. 4.
