Good morning.

Since the atoning work of our Lord, Jesus Christ, is complete and He is now seated at the right hand of the Father, how should we respond?

Paul tells us to "set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature:" (Colossians 3:2‭, ‬5)

The order of our response Paul puts forward is significant. Focus on things above, then deal with earthly nature.

Could this be that when we see the glory of God we will respond in the words of the great hymn "How Great Thou Art".

"Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee

How great Thou art, how great Thou art

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee

How great Thou art, how great Thou art"

When the awesomeness of God is seen, we will want to deal with earthly nature by putting it to death.

Heading to the weekend we have to habits to learn:

• Set your minds on things above

• Put to death your earthly nature

Have a great day.
