"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Genesis 43:1-34
But Judah said to him, “The man solemnly warned us, saying, ‘You shall not see my face unless your brother is with you.’ If you will send our brother with us, we will go down and buy you food. But if you will not send him, we will not go down, for the man said to us, ‘You shall not see my face, unless your brother is with you.’” Israel said, “Why did you treat me so badly as to tell the man that you had another brother?”

What are you holding onto hoping to God that it will give you life? Does the dead body of Christ resurrect while Mary clutches to it? Can Israel become a light for the nations with Jacob clinging to his favorite son? Can the church be "good news" if the Gospel hasn't really changed us? Saving faith doesn't make bad people good it makes dead people alive. Join us as we practice heaven through worship and reconciliation. Lord help us all to let go of everything keeping us from you.
