Type: Sunday Sermon

Today Paul enters into his discussion of what it means to be heavenly-minded. While he began his exhortations by urging the Colossians to "put off" various forms of earthly-mindedness, he now urges them to "put on" heavenly-mindedness. But what we find when we examine Paul's description of "heavenly-mindedness" is that it is very earthy. Heavenly-mindedness affects the way I interact with other members of the body of Christ, affect my marriage, my family, my employment; indeed, it affects every dimension of my life. So let us explore the earthiness of being heavenly-minded.
