There is an old expression: ‚Äúhe‚Äôs so heavenly-minded that he‚Äôs no earthly good.‚ÄĚ While there is some common sense in that phrase, it is not entirely biblical. Rather, God‚Äôs work teaches that until we are heavenly-minded that we cannot possibly be any earthly good. Today we will examine the relationship between Christ‚Äôs example of obedience and how we should live here on earth ourselves.
