In this passage we are called to seek the things above but how do we do that in reality? John explains how. We need to know God’s powerful work in us, desperately seek Christ and the things above, and long for the glory to come.
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is your[a] life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
