Why is it Important to be Heavenly Minded?
by Randy Alcorn
Do you often think about heaven? Does it make a difference? These are the questions we discussed in today’s staff devotional. What do you think?
We began by watching a short video from Randy Alcorn http://www.epm.org/resources/2012/Aug/2/why-it-important-be-heavenly-minded-video/ ;and then we considered the following scripture:
1 Corinthians 2:9 (ESV) – “But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”
Ephesians 2:6 (ESV) – “and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus”
Colossians 3:2 (ESV) – “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”
2 Peter 3:12-13 (ESV) – “waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! 13 But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”
