Colossians 3:2 (VOICE) Stay focused on what’s above, not on earthly things,
Beloved, be mindful of your focus, for that which you focus on, you make room for. So make room for Me, and for the things of heaven. Refuse to be distracted by the troubles of this world or the counterfeits that would come to steal your gaze.
Refuse to settle for anything less than a full-fledged, wholehearted relationship with Me. Refuse to stop your pursuit of the One who made you, who redeemed you, and who has healed you. For I AM worthy of the pursuit. And just as I have held nothing back in My pursuit of you, so you should reflect that same passion back in your dedicated desire to know Me.
Colossians 3:1-3 (VOICE) So it comes down to this: since you have been raised with the Anointed One, the Liberating King, set your mind on heaven above. The Anointed is there, seated at God’s right hand. Stay focused on what’s above, not on earthly things, because your old life is dead and gone. Your new life is now hidden, enmeshed with the Anointed who is in God.
