“The Gospel: The Living Faith.” Colossians 2:1-5 Monday, January 4, 2021
The gospel is a living faith. In fact, our names are written in the Lamb's book of life. We are covered by the life of Christ. Although this is a reality for everyone in Christ, there are times when we might become discouraged. Paul wrote to the Colossian believers "…so that they may be encouraged in heart…" (Colossians 2:2). Paul's letter to the believers in Colosse was motivated by the will of God to lend a helping hand to those who no longer belong to this world. We no longer look to this world for strength and encouragement. We are called to find our encouragement from a source outside of this world. In fact, we are called to grow in our knowledge of Christ "…in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" (Colossians 2:3). Our encouragement meter should be rising heavenward more and more each day.
