My Daily Thoughts–My Thoughts on Colossians 3:12-17

Colossians 3:12-17 (NKJV) Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also…

My Daily Devotions–My Thoughts on Colossians 1:1-11

Colossians 3:1-11 (NKJV) If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. 5 Therefore put to death your…

My Daily Devotions–Thoughts on Colossians 2:18-23

Colossians 2:18-23 (NKJV) Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God. 20 Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic…

My Daily Devotions–Thoughts on Colossians 11-17

Colossians 2:11-17 (NKJV) In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made…

Colossians 1:24-29 (NKJV) I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now…

Colossians 1:19-23 (NKJV) For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. 21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 in the body of His flesh through death, to…

Devotion of Ephesians 4:1-3

Ephesians 4:1-3 Verses 1-6 are 3 sentences. We will deal with the first 3 verses. First, Paul declares himself to be a prisoner on account of being a Christian (of the Lord). He pleads for the believers to walk worthy (up to God’s standards) of the calling (invitation from the Holy Spirit) with which you were called (they responded in faith, so past tense). He pleads for them to have particular character traits–lowliness, gentleness, longsuffering,…

Following Jesus

Mark 8:34 (VW) And when He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. The Lord Jesus had been teaching (prophesying) the people of His coming suffering, death, and resurrection. Peter was not pleased and with false hope rebukes Jesus in hopes of encouraging Him. Jesus rebukes Peter with the stern…
