Fully Mature

FULLY MATURE To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

To this end I strenuously contend with all the …Continue reading →

Christ’s Suffering Made Perfect

CHRIST’S SUFFERING MADE COMPLETE  Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of His body, the church.

Once . . . But Now

ONCE . . . BUT NOW Once you were alienated from God and enemies in your minds because of your evil behaviour.

THE SONG OF CREATION The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

He is before all things, and in Him …Continue reading →

RESCUED AND REDEEMED 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.

THE GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE “In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world – just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace.

Which God?

WHICH GOD? “We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the people – the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already …Continue reading →

GRACE AND PEACE “Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to God’s holy people in Colossae, the faithful brothers and sisters in Christ: Grace and peace to you from God our Father.” Colossians 1:1, 2.

Contented In Any Situation

CONTENTED IN ANY SITUATION “I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned but you had no opportunity to show it.

Mind Your Mind

MIND YOUR MIND “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if there is anything excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.

Only Two Models

ONLY TWO MODELS “For, as I have often told you before, and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.

And we eagerly …Continue reading →

Verse of the Day

“[The Birth of Jesus] In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.
