Setting Your Mind on Christ
Set your mind’ means to anchor it and let it dwell on one focus. Before we were born again, the focus of life was our self. This passage in Colossians is saying Since you were raised with Christ, you have a new life in Him. His life has come to you. All that He purchased belongs to you—forgiveness of sins, reconciliation with God, the gift of the Holy Spirit, adoption into the family of God and heaven as an everlasting home. It’s all yours because you are His! You are a citizen of heaven, you are raised with Christ so keep your mind on Christ.
