Colossians 3:1-11

Each year 2.2 billion people pay up to $105 for a one day magical memory at Disneyland.* Disney researchers observed that the average person will carry an empty beverage cup or candy wrapper only 27 feet before littering. Therefore, they carefully position trash containers every 27 feet.** Their goal is to eliminate all unsightly distractions so their guests are free to focus on recreation and to enjoy the beautiful setting.

With the exuberance of a child in a theme park, we stand in awe of God’s kingdom glory and the beauty of His holiness. In today’s scripture, Paul urges us to look up and to be heavenly minded. Suddenly we are aware that we must rid ourselves of actions and attitudes that displease Him. The psalmist cried out, “my sins have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up” (Psalm 40:12, NKJV). When Christ is all, and is in all, we are made clean and set free.

    We need to turn our eyes on ourselves as we live in this world to locate the garbage in our life that needs to be thrown away.

    Correction: We need to turn our eyes on Jesus (who is strategically placed in this world through the creation and the Bible) and throw the garbage in our life away
