Our Life = Christ
think about it.
What value does God put on us, whether or not we are married (Gen. 1:27-28)? How does God's promise (Jer. 29:11) help you trust Him even when you don't understand? Single or married, what does God want to see us become as His chosen ones (Col. 3:1-17)? What does it say about our worth and purpose, on our own or married?
Colossians 3:1-17 was like a breath of fresh air for me today. This is such an excellent passage and a great place to go for reminders of what our lives should look like as Christ-followers and what it is that God has for us. This passage is literally jammed full of direction and instruction for us.
As I began reading, the first few words of verse 4 ("When Christ, who is your life. . .") hit me head on. I stopped right there and asked myself What does "Christ is my life" really mean for me? I had some thoughts and then, as I continued on, what Paul had to say helped me answer that question even more.
So what does "Christ being your life" mean for you? Was there a specific portion of Colossians 3:1-17 that spoke to you today? Tami W.
