Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. Colossians 2:8 (NKJV)
World Changer: Apostle Paul in all his letter that wrote to the Colossians, he insisted that Christ was the hope of glory and therefore our priority so that He may dwell in the hearts of all those that have been born again in the Gospel.
This letter to Colosse teaches us to walk united in love until we reach all the riches and understanding that allows us to know who is God the Father and who is His Son Jesus Christ, because in Him are hidden all the treasures of His wisdom and knowledge, so that no one deceives us with persuasive words that sound good but are half-truths, that is, they are lies.
Enjoying God’s wisdom happens after receiving Jesus as our Lord and Saviour when we start to walk with Him and our lives we root it and build on the rock that of course is Jesus. We need our words and actions to be confirmed through faith in the Son of God so that no one deceives us using philosophies and empty subtleties, which are those taught by the world and its traditions and are not according to Christ.
*In Jesus, all God’s fulness is found and He wants to dwell in us because He is our victory and the only one that can give us hope of salvation and eternal life (Colossians 2:1-10).
Because of our being Christians, the act against us has been annulled, for Jesus took it out of the way and nailed it to the cross (Colossians 2:14).
Today is your day to ask Jesus for forgiveness and to receive Him in your heart to be saved and not be deceived (Romans 10: 8-13).
Christ in us our hope of glory and our world-changing victory (Colossians 1:27, 1 Corinthians 15:10, 57). Hallelujah.
