realities of heaven [+] Tuesday E-Devotion

Colossians 3:1 (nlt) --- Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God's right hand.
Virtual Reality is cool, and the more I read or research or hear things about it, the cooler it gets.  Yet how real is it?
Kind of the same kind of question about the things of faith and of heaven.  Right?  Some people just don't get it or know why God is.  God is reality.  But that takes a huge amount of faith and living life that links to and lives with God stuff, God's people and so much more.
Hebrews 11:1 (nlt) --- Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
Think about the reality.
The verse I began with asks us, no, demands that God's people "set your sights on the realities of heaven".  What does that mean for us?  What are we to think about or invest in?  Where are we to volunteer?  What are we to dive into head first?  What are we to give to and allow to consume us and our extra stuff and time?
This is not new, but here it is ... IT IS ALL ABOUT GOD.
Think about that reality.  Give to that reality.  Let God fill this reality.  Make sure that where your stuff is and where you mind goes is in something that really matters.  That is God's reality!
Galatians 5:6 (nlt) --- For when we place our faith in Christ Jesus, there is no benefit in being circumcised or being uncircumcised. What is important is faith expressing itself in love.
The realities of heaven.  Plain and simple.
