Today's Good News


8/23 Colossians 2:6-7
And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to live in obedience to him. Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him, so you will grow in faith, strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with thanksgiving for all he has done.
I cannot grow if I am disobedient. Today I want to grow therefore I will obey the Lord. It is helpful that we focus on Jesus. Forget the sins that so easily entangle us and focus on Jesus. His guidance as we focus on Him will untangle our sin, call us to repentance and a closer walk with HIM. Remember that focusing on our sin will only entice us to sin more. Focusing on Jesus will pull us out of our sin and into a closer relationship with HIM. When we walk with Jesus we will not be involved in sin.
