“Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God” (Colossians 3:1).

Using the imagery of baptism, there is an assumption that his readers have been raised up with Christ to walk in the newness of life, and therefore, reflect a trending upward toward their high calling. Too often we downgrade our dream to match our reality instead of upgrading our faith to match our destiny. Reaching higher requires shooting higher.
