My pastor has been focusing on Colossians 1:28 the last few weeks.
Col. 1:28 Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.
How do you say, “A few things have stood out to me,” without offending him? So, Pastor Todd, if you ever read this, know that “for this purpose” a few things stood out. And, I am sure I am paraphrasing a little.
Courage Changes Everything
Eternity is Long, and Hell is Hot!
We don’t have the power to live the Christian life – We were created for Christ to live through us.
So, here I stand, at the beginning of this adventure. Am I courageous? Not really, but…
Galatians 2:20 – I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
I believe Jesus IS God and I will proclaim Him. I will endeavor to encourage others to proclaim Him. Together, may our light, however small it may seem be seen by someone and may today’s courage change everything for someone.
Do you have a moment where courage through Christ changed something?
