“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, 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, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 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. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation—” (Colossians 1:9-22)
I almost didn’t post anything today, because I’m not feeling particularly inspired or spiritual to post on Wednesday’s Wisdom From the Word. I’m having one of those “foggy” days… where I’d rather crawl back into bed then think. I’m not sick, but my eyes want to close and my thoughts aren’t all that coherent. So, like I said, I wasn’t going to post.
But, today I read the above passage from Colossians and I love it. I really wanted to have something great to say about it… but I have nothing. So, today, I’m thinking the words of God are more than enough. Go back, reread them and let God speak to your soul. (He’s a much better writer than I am.)
