Our ultimate and first priority shouldn’t be our health, job, money, not even family rather it should be God and His Kingdom. We should be heavenly minded. Heavenly mindedness is all about thinking about the City of God and praying for righteousness, joy and peace to reign on earth. Scripture reveals to us a heavenly city whose builder and maker is God, where those who have been redeemed will be superior to angels. In the city, there is “a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and the Lamb.” The city and its main street are pure gold, as clear as glass. R.C. Sproul once said “We need to know where we headed. That’s why it is important for you to be knowledgeable and cognizant of the destiny that God has for His people. Keep your eyes focused on the City of God. That is where we going. That’s where we are heading. If we understand that that is our destination, we won’t tend to get lost and roam all over the place. But we will stay in the way of Christ.” This year let’s keep our eyes on eternity and encourage one another to do the same.
“Aim at heaven and you will get earth throw in. Aim at earth and you get neither.” C. S. Lewis
