Devotional Guide for Thursday, November 24

Colossians 3:1-11


Our theme this ministry year is Following Jesus, and we are looking at what it looks like in a practical way to live a life that follows Jesus.
Sometimes I’m guilty of overthinking what it means to live a life that models following Jesus. Verse 2 reads, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

When I read this verse, it helps me remember where I should put my daily focus. I need to remember that what Jesus thinks is far more important than what the world thinks or believes I should be concerned about.

Verses 5-11 give us some examples (it’s not an exhaustive list), of what we should be mindful of and not allow to take over our lives.


Take some time today to explore what it looks like for you to truly live out setting your mind on things above and not on earthly things.

Pray for VantagePoint3 Ministries

VantagePoint3 (VP3) partners with church leaders, as well as men and women in the marketplace, seminaries, and home who are looking for a proven, integrated process to help them deepen and develop adults in Jesus’ name. Adults, now more than ever, need a supportive and challenging process, like The Journey or A Way of Life, to make greater sense of the Spirit’s work in their lives and the world. Looking ahead to the 2022-23 ministry year, we appreciate your prayers for the ongoing development of, as we seek to uncover, encourage, and equip a broader audience of Christian leaders interested in a mentoring way of life and ministry, and an outpouring of leaders who are looking to set the The Journey table for adults to discover more deeply the mystery and purpose of their lives, and for the VP3 Team and Board’s ongoing growth as a discerning community, learning to be led by Jesus amidst the opportunities and challenges of this peculiar time.
