Going Somewhere Good – August 11, 2019

Scripture: Colossians 3: 1-11

Therefore, if you were raised with Christ, look for the things that are above where Christ is sitting at God’s right side. Think about the things above and not things on earth. You died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory. (Colossians 3: 1-4)

If Christ is “in us”, what is the end goal for the cosmos in its entirety?  Where are we going with all this?The first public word of record out of Jesus’ mouth was the Greek imperative verb metabolite, which literally translates as “change your mind” or “go beyond your mind.” Changing our worldview is the point of the gospel, and going somewhere good teams having to go through and with the bad, and being unable to hold ourselves above it or apart from it. We never stop growing toward a more inclusive love when we are following Christ.
