Set Your Mind On Things Above :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-up #36

Set your mind on things above. It’s a verse that has been repeated a time or two in Christian circles. But what does it mean? And how does it help us follow after and walk with Jesus? If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear […]

And it shall be, when he is guilty in any of these matters, that he shall confess that he has sinned in that thing: and he shall bring his trespass offering to the Lord for his sin which he has committed… Leviticus 5:5-6 Confess. It means to show one’s self as guilty. Sin. It means to miss or wonder away from the path of righteousness. Sin and confess. These aren’t words that I like to talk about too much. Well, at least I don’t like talking about them when it comes to my own sin […]
