God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 1:20 NRSV)

I like the attitude of a college student down at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida who was thrown in jail with some of his friends for being too rowdy during the Easter holidays. "I demand my constitutional right to make one phone call," he said to the police sergeant. Fifteen minutes later a delivery boy called at the jail. "Who ordered a combination pizza with everything?" he asked. That student turned his jail experience into something fun.

When the early Christians were thrown in jail for their beliefs, they sang hymns and gave thanks to God. The only real prison in life is in our own minds. Regardless of our circumstances, with the right attitude we can soar to God's heavenly kingdom.

Dear God, help my attitude to reach your heavenly kingdom. In Jesus' name, Amen.
