Care For The Soul: Back to Where it Started
Today, Sean Phillipps shares with us an encouragement from Colossians.
He says that we have got to be able to get a word from God and we have got to be able to go back to where it started.
Here are some notes from the clip:
Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you
I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness
I am a servant to the body of Christ, a servant to the church of god, a servant to my local church. How have I become a servant? By the commission that God gave to present to you the word of God in if’s fullness.
Where do I draw my strength? Through the knowledge that I have been called by God.
He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.
Where do I get this energy from? It comes from Christ because I know that I am called.
My goal is that they… may know the mystery of god, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how disciplined you are and how firm your faith in Christ is.
