“She’s so heavenly minded that she’s no earthly good.”
Shortly after I received Christ, I used to hear that phrase all time. This would be said by some, in the attempt to “warn me” about certain people to stay away from. Most of the time, this phrase would be said about the very people I should have been introduced to, in order to grow me.
I’ve come to realize, that there’s no such thing as being “too heavenly minded.” If anything, to be a follower of Christ means that I should be more heavenly minded. After a worship service, either at church or on my own time, I feel like an alien from another planet. I’m either all in Him in every aspect of my being and life, or I’m not.
Many around me don’t understand this, and that’s OK. I’ve learned that the ones who are not very understanding, are the ones who feel the Holy Spirit convicting them. And I’m not talking about preaching to people. I mean, just being who I am, others get uncomfortable. And that used to get to me until I learned that there are some in the body of Christ who are very comfortable with being carnal. It’s not for me to judge, but LIVE FOR CHRIST ANYWAY.
If I’m too heavenly minded, that’s just fine with me because one of these days, He’s coming back, and I’ll where I belong.
