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 honour at God’s right hand. Col 3:1
What you set your sights on, what you look at and focus on and give time to effects the light of your life. Jesus said that your eyes are like a window for your body. Paul says to set your sights on the realities of heaven.
These two ideas should help us to focus on Christ because when our thinking and actions and reactions are aligned with the realities of heaven, it is like our body is full of light (Mt 6:22). This is a constant mandate for us as disciples of Jesus. And we are not alone for Jesus said:
