Heavenly Minded; Powerfully Good on earth!
Exodus 25:40 And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.
Matthew 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Somebody within the Christian circle once said that a person could be so heavenly minded that he is of no earthly good! What was being communicated here is that the person is probably day dreaming about heaven and has neglected the earthly duties that he was supposed to do! On closer examination of this statement, we will realize that this person really did not have a blueprint of heaven but merely a vague, fuzzy notion of heaven that became a distraction!
The truth is Jesus wants us to be so heavenly minded that we become powerfully good on earth! Why is this so? Consider how he taught his disciples to pray, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven!” In other words, if you are not aligned with Heaven, you cannot enforce His will on earth! Our minds must be so filled with the blueprints of Heaven according to the will of God and see them becoming a reality here on earth!
The instruction God gave to Moses was clear: Build according to the pattern I have shown you and when he did, the glory of God came and Moses talked with God face to face! How much more when we build according to Heaven’s pattern triggering the better promises given to us in the New Covenant!
So are you heavenly minded enough? Frankly, there is no alternative! Receive from our Father and let us build together! Amen.
