Keep Seeking the Things Above

This morning a friend emailed me the blog address of a family he knows thinking that, being into blogging myself, I might be interested in checking it out. I did visit this blog and, upon doing so, was quite encouraged by what I found. In the bloggers’ own words, this blog is designed “to give analogies of everyday life and relate them to Christ.” Essentially, they are relating stories of everyday events and seeing Christ even in these “mundane things.”

I got to thinking about this concept of seeing Christ in all things, and concluded that our ability to do that should result in praise and glory to our King. Praise God that He has made Himself evident in that which He has created! “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:18-20). God has made a way through His creation for all to come to the knowledge of Him. What a blessing that the work of God’s hands calls out to the saved and unsaved alike, beckoning us all unto Him.

As I said earlier, I was encouraged by this fellow blogger’s words. Instead of allowing the mundane things of everyday life to blind him to the majestic things of our great God, he is actively looking for God even in the most “un-religious” of situations. May this be a reminder to me to “keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God” (Colossians 3:1).
