. . .when certain scriptures leap up in my heart in recognition and need. Here's one of them for today:
Since then you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
We've actually been raised with Christ through His resurrection, and, because that's true, we can only see what's real from that position. We're now in Christ--there's no gettin' out of Him--and He is our life.
