Colossians 1:9-14, For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of His holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Are you a newspaper or magazine Christian? Most newspapers/magazines have a section somewhere at the back of all the other articles devoted to Religion. Behind the front page headlines, the advertisements and the classifieds lies the section that gives tribute to God, faith, and biblical truths.
Don’t miss Paul’s message- He says, “We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives”. The Apostle Paul is saying we should not relegate our walk with God to a small section of our lives. We should not push it to the back section of importance and focus. Our faith and our walk should be front page news. Real Christianity is not just devoted to Sunday morning; however, he says, we should be filled up with the knowledge of God to the point that it affects every thought, word, action and relationship.
Think about it…and have a blessed day!
