Start really living the Christian life -- the Pauline life, the Heavenly life in Christ. No, not pie in the sky, not wishful thinking, not mysticism. The Pauline Christian life is walking in the Spirit according to God's written Word.
the Christian life
"Therefore, if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you died and your life has been hidden with Christ in God.." -- Colossians 3:1-3
