“And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven” (Acts 1:10-11). Might that describe (sadly) most believers today – mostly looking and not zealously being about the Lord’s business?
Brothers, are you looking up, down, or around? What generally has our attention has our heart. We don’t give our longterm attention to things we don’t have a heart for. “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:1-2). May we love the Lord Jesus with all our hearts – give Him our attention – and be busy about His business.
