What Are You After In This World? (Colossians 3:1-4)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, August 28, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

Legalism is bondage as it ties one to something other than God. The first thing that came to Adam and Eve was sin and then death. We are not able to keep the law of the old testaments. There were over 600 laws back before Jesus came. Are you born again? If so, then you should seek those things that are of God. It's easier said than done when we should work for the things not of this world. Ask yourself this question, is there anything in your life that's greater than Jesus? The only time you'll seek after something is when you love it more than something else. The saved should desire heavenly things over the earthly. In most every church you find most are then same when it comes to workers. There is a very small percentage that actually work because they are the only ones sold out to Christ. There are three reasons why we seek after God. The first, we are dead to the world. What can a dead person do? We chase everything in the world like its the greatest thing ever to come. Rom 6:1-2 How can a born again believer chase after something that's dead? The second thing is that we are hid in Christ. This means the saved is secured in Christ. The third is when Jesus comes back we will be with Him. Shouldn't it be important that we be doing His work when we are called to glory? A Christian will regret not doing His work from the past.

Colossians 3:1-4

1If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. (KJV)
