Colossians 31-4 Set Your Mind On Things Above

Colossians 31-4
1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those
things which are above, where Christ is, sitting
at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on
things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For
you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in
God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears,
then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Those whom Paul had been describing in the
previous chapter sought for a higher mode of
living, but it fell short of what which the
Christian is to pursue. Their quest for mystical
experiences was limited to the low level of such
created existences as the principalities and
powers, and their emphasis on asceticism (touch
not, taste not, handle not) kept them bound to
matter on the earth. The contrast is between
things that are only subordinate and instrumental
(things of earth) and things that are supreme and
final (things of heaven). Walton Weaver, Truth
Commentaries - Philippians, Colossians, 488.

But there will be this difference - from now on
the Christian will see everything in the light
and against the background of eternity. He will
no longer live as if this world was all that
mattered he will see this world against the
background of the larger world of eternity.
William Barclary, The Letters to the
Philippians, Colossians, and Thessalonians, 177.
