From God’s Word

Beware lest anyone [take you captive]
through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
political and social culture is filled with human philosophy and agendas that are not filled with the knowledge and understanding of Christ. Paul says … beware! Don’t be deceived and fall in step with their way of thinking. Remember that
only in Christ is life-giving wisdom and knowledge. Apart from Him is darkness and confusion.
As children of God, we must continue to persevere in our callings to make Christ known. We must be light and love as we speak
about our faith and our sweet Jesus. May we live in a way that others are drawn, and not repelled, by what we have to offer. In all things, let us seek the wisdom and knowledge of Christ so that we will know how to live bold and love well.
Over the past two months, we’ve looked at Paul’s letters to the Ephesians and Philippians. This month, our focus will be in his letter to the Colossians. This is another one of Paul’s “prison
letters”. It is dated during Paul’s first imprisonment in Rome in A.D. 60. At that time, there was a lot of empty human philosophy being taught. Sound familiar? Paul’s goal was to exalt Christ as the very image of God, being one who contained
all the fullness of God and was completely adequate in all ways and for all things. As Christ-followers, it is imperative that we proclaim the all-sufficiency of Jesus Christ and His relevance in our culture. He is our answer for everything.
