“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Col. 3:2
A spiritual entity being that we are created in the image and likeness of God. That (image and likeness) which makes a man able to apprehend and submit to the authority of the Creator. But the mind needs to be reprogrammed, sanctified, and renewed. At glorification we get a new body and mind.
Heavenly mind: Saved along with our soul and body. Greater than Adams at creation who was not a caveman. He was created in the image and likeness of God and right away was given rights over God's creation. He was created a full adult with the same being true of his mind. Having just been created from dirt he stands and communicates with God and able to comprehend the words coming from his Creator. A mind capable of giving meaningful names to the animals paraded past him. Daily communication with God and learning as God spoke to his creature made in his image and likeness. Adam had all necessary faculties to not only name but manage God's intricate creation. Adam was a brilliant person, mentally perfect and God's view of His creation, which included Adam was very good. We use 5% of our total mental capacity. Adam used 100% of his.
Our thinking will be changed Rev. 21:4-5. We will think on only good things Isa. 65:17. No dirty laundry according to the Eagles. Only precious memories 1 Cor. 13:12. Our intellects will exceed that of Adam before the fall. Ours now is seeing darkly but Adam saw face to face. We shall at that point, only better. We will be open with a great thirst for learning, as a child. Our thinking will be reprogrammed according to the fear of God, Eph. 2:6-7. We will be redone for righteousness sake. We shall finally have a sound mind. We shall be thinking as Christ.
Who wants to hang around here?
This verse gives recognition of the two forces of which man is ever conscious-the upward pull and the downward pull with a declaration that wisdom consists in answering the upward.
