Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
This evening I'm mindful of the importance of first setting my heart on His things and then setting my mind. For me they are 2 very different processes. My heart is the difficult one. And, if I can be successful in setting my heart...my mind usually follows.
I think He worded it in this order because He knew I would struggle with trying to set my mind without having my heart set. He knew I would do the right things for the wrong reasons with an ugly heart. But, He also knew that If I get my heart right and set it on Jesus...my mind will easily follow.
Tonight...I wish it weren't so hard.
