Talking About A Right NOW Word!
We kicked off a study of the Book of Colossians Wednesday night at Faith Renewed.
In preparation for this study, I read the “Personal Application” section on Colossians, in my New Spirit Filled Life Bible. I was blown away by what it said. Paul wrote Colossians to the church in Colosse, but it’s a timely Word for the church in America.
I was asked to post what I read by someone in our church. Ask, and you shall receive…
Here it is:
Because this is an age of religious pluralism and syncretism (that is, a diluting of truth for the sake of unity), Christ’s lordship is deemed irrelevant by many religious groups that believe one religion is as good as the other. His preeminence is denied by others that place the Christian stamp upon a fusion of beliefs from several religions. Usually held as an advance beyond apostolic Christianity, this blend promises self-fulfillment and freedom without surrender to Christ.
“Jesus is Lord” is the church’s earliest confession. It remains the abiding test of authentic Christianity. Neither the church nor the individual believer can afford to compromise Christ’s deity. In His sovereignty lies His sufficiency. He will be Lord of everything or not Lord at all.
Can I get an AMEN?!!!
