"If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits at the right hand of God. Set your affections on things above, not on things on the earth" (Colossians 3:1-2).
AMEN, and when He said, "seek those things which are above" he was sure to add, "where Christ sits ". He was careful to not mislead the appetites of the carnally minded when he added, "where Christ sits". He didn't want them to turn from earthly objects to heavenly objects, for that would only be cloaking a carnal mind with a heavenly garb. The emphasis is where Christ sits.
He seemed to be leading us to seek a plurality by using the word "things" but his message was very singular when he said, "where Christ sits".
Need wisdom, lack power, do you desire to know the humility and personality of the Eternal Self Existent One? Christ is the "wisdom" and "power" of God, the very "brightness of God's glory and the express image of His nature, authority, and character". For this reason the angels never cease crying out "Holy", for in that eternal and heavenly abode they do not cease beholding Him who sits on the throne. We too would cry with them if we would but seek Him, find Him, and set our affections upon Him.
Paul began with a clarion call to turn our gaze upwards to Christ Himself, in pursuit of Him and then for all to set their affections on things above, namely, those things only found in Him, while seeking Him.
For that is the natural flow for all true Christian experience. First a seeking, a seeking that is singular in nature. Then a finding of what was sought, which always leads to an inward arousal of affections fixed solely upon the single object of desire, even Christ Himself.
