Set Your Affection On Things Above
by David J. Stewart | August 2017
Colossians 3:1-3, “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”
The world is in a mess today because the world is full of unsaved people who have never been regenerated by the Holy Spirit of God. They have never been born anew into God's family. They are still hellbound in their sins without Jesus Christ. They need to GET SAVED!
But there's another big problem in our world, and that is born-again believers who have their affection (heart and mind) set on the temporal things of this earthly life. Proverb 4:23, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Sin has turned our world into a giant insane asylum...
“Insanity because we're in sin!”
—Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982), from the sermon “Steps In The Degeneration Of Our Nation.”
My friend, you give God your heart and He'll comb the kinks out of your head!!!
Set Your Affection On Things Above!
Folks, let's get our mind and heart on the things of God. Let us think about winning souls to Jesus. The average person has a garbage pail for a mind. If you have a filthy mind, that always thinks bad thoughts, the best way to clean it up is to listen to Bible-preaching and the Word of God as much as possible!!! Psalms 119:9, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.” I love that Scripture!!! You just read it! How does a young man CLEANSE HIS WAY? By obeying the Word of God. You do what God wants you do it, and your life will come back together!!! I don't care how messed up your life may seem, God will put it back together if you'll simply do things HIS WAY instead of yours...

Search the Scriptures and memorize some helpful passages. Psalms 119:11, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” When temptations arise, the Scriptures that you memorize will help you. If you have difficulty memorizing Scripture, then listen to the Bible every day. And this is VERY IMPORTANT, ONLY USE THE KING JAMES BIBLE. One of the reasons why the Devil keeps publishing new Bible versions (there are literally hundreds today) is to discourage people from memorizing the Bible. If Satan can get you to doubt the Word of God, he has destroyed your confidence. Use ONLY the King James Bible!!!
Turn off that music (it doesn't matter if it's secular or religious) and turn on some hard fundamental Bible-preaching!!! We all need preaching to help us THINK RIGHT! Pray and ask God to create a proper attitude and a clean heart in you. Psalms 51:10, “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” Read your Bible, pray every day, and you'll grow, grow, grow!!! Neglect your Bible, forget to pray, and you'll shrink, shrink, shrink! It is really that simple.
I watched this precious video last night, titled, "THE BUS MINISTRY," at Shining Light Baptist Church in Morganton, North Carolina. Danny Castle is their awesome pastor. I encourage you Adriana to watch the full video, it is beautiful...
THE BUS MINISTRY (awesome video)
I thank God that I am a redeemed Christian! Sickos like the fools behind Rick and Morty are helping to corrupt our society, while men of God like Brother Castle are helping to save people's lives!!!

me against the evildoers? or who will

“Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.” —Isaiah 5:14-16
