Philippians 3:12-4:1

Someone once said to me, some people are so heavenly-minded that they are no earthly good!  Paul counsels us rather to be so heavenly minded we are of tremendous earthly good.  He challenges us to live with our hearts in heaven but our feet on this earth, making where we are an outpost of heaven.  On the day we either make profession of our faith in Christ or witness others doing so, it is a good time to commit our selves to living in such a way as to point others to the place of which the church on earth is only a colony of the real thing.  As Paul put it, “stand firm in the Lord, dear friends!”
