Colossians 2:6-9 CEB
“So live in Christ Jesus the Lord in the same way as you received Him. Be rooted and built up in Him, be established in faith, and overflow with thanksgiving just as you were taught. See to it that nobody enslaves you with philosophy and foolish deception, which conform to the human traditions and the way the world thinks and acts rather than Christ. All the fullness of deity lives in Christ’s body.”
We are to die and live in Christ. The letter to the Colossians is a great educator to this fact. Even as much as we are all individuals and our lives are starkly different from each other; our circumstances and history, our influences and struggles, these all differ…it is still true that in the eyes of Christ we are the same. In that He loves us, died for us and calls us to live in Him.
Therefore, although we are different we are all on the same journey and have the ability to speak life into each others lives. We are the same even with all of our differences. Lets us all have the mind of Christ. Rooted and built up in Him.
You are loved,
