An astronaut undergoes rigorous physical ordeals and endures years of training before going into space. It’s not enough to know the names of the constellations or have a degree in engineering or be an active member of the military. There’s much more that goes into preparation for space than most of us will ever understand. The training takes a long time. Right now we Christ followers are like astronauts in training. One day we will join God in the new heaven and the new earth, but for now we have a job to do: to know God and make Him known to those around us. We can change our mindset. We’re alive in Christ, and as we live for Him, we can help others find the way back to God. The astronaut in training focuses on the journey ahead. We can focus on the eternal things of God.
Colossians 3:1-3 NIV
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
