I must be serious about the resurrection life with Jesus. It isn’t only about what I think but is very much about what I do. I must act like I am living a completely new life in Jesus.
Jesus is in control. Jesus is my Master. I must go after what Jesus wants not what I want. The new life is completely about Jesus. Jesus is the main thing about the main thing. It doesn’t matter what I want.
Jesus challenges me to look up and look to him. I shouldn’t just plod along. I must focus on Jesus and the “big picture”. I must see things the way Jesus sees them. That is how I should focus.
So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with the Messiah, act like it. Pursue the things over which the Messiah presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around the Messiah—that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective.
