Saul, on the road to Damascus, was encountered by the resurrected Christ, and it changed his life forever. Christ began to do a new work in Saul, giving a persecutor of the early church, a new identity as Paul; a charismatic and mission-minded Christian. A slasher of the status quo and demolisher of the idea that it is by law we obtained our eternal reward; Paul went against the grain of tradition, teaching that it is by the grace and mercy of God we receive life with Christ.
Paul, through his writings, teaches us that having our minds set above means having a mindset that glorifies and pursues a resurrected Christ; casting aside foolish thoughts and abiding in the frame of mind where we gain the courage and tenacity to stand therefore against opposition. He explains in Ephesians 6 that we do not fight against earthly things and instead reminds us to fix our minds and eyes above where our battles are fought and won. He goes on to say we are to put on the helmet of salvation, our resurrected life helmet which is the mindset and the identity of resurrection.
Paul's next pen stroke was about picking up the sword, which is the word of God and it opens our minds and hearts to who resurrection is; resurrection is Jesus. And a resurrected mind is in God's Word, holding tight to the understanding that the sword is useless if it remains closed, unstudied, and its contents unabsorbed.
When we weald the sword that is resurrection and he flows through us, Christ begins to develop the fruit or the evidence of one who is resurrected within us. A mind set on things above is above reproach, equipped against the attacks of the enemy, ready to trample all opposition as it charges towards its heavenly goal.
Saved people are resurrected people and resurrected people will rise against the adversary for the glory of the resurrected King of all kings.
