Focus On Divine Things

Key Verse

“Set your affections on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:2).

Text — Colossians 3:1-4


In his famous book: The Pilgrim’s Progress, John Bunyan describes how Christian, and his companion, Faithful, comported themselves in the town of Vanity Fair on their pilgrimage to heaven. While at Vanity Fair, the pilgrims cared not so much as to look upon the wares that were displayed for sale; instead, they would put their fingers into their ears and cry, “Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity” and look upward, signifying that their attention was fixed on  heaven.

The world has a way of pulling down true Christians by dangling before their eyes sinful entertainments, and temptation to steal, lust after boys or girls, commit internet fraud or cheat in business and exams. Truly regenerated youths make conscious efforts to re-route their affections away from sinful vanities to things that are heavenly. This is achievable as they spend more time meditating on the words of Christ. They should seek God through regular prayers on both personal and corporate basis. They must keep away from intimate relationships with worldly-minded fellows. They are to avoid activities that tend to draw their attention from God and righteousness.


Seek God through regular prayers


Keep looking unto Jesus.

Prayer for today

O Lord, turn away my eyes from beholding vanities.
