“If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.” “bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.” Colossians 3:1, 13 NKJV

Sometimes it is really hard to rise above all the drama. It can be difficult to keep our mind focused on the things of Christ when we are embroiled in a conflict. Paul tells us to bear with one another. This means being understanding that people are flawed and are going to make mistakes. It also means that when people purposely do things to hurt you that, just like Christ, we need to forgive them. Doing so frees our mind to focus on things above, not doing so clogs our mind and weighs us down.

It could be real easy to sit around and complain about what people have done to you, and you could be justified in doing it, but it wouldn’t get you anywhere. Our mind is a battlefield that Satan is constantly trying to get a foothold in. We allow that to happen when we complain and don’t forgive. Take up the armor of God and fight the battle with the Word of God and the Power of the Holy Spirit.
