Topic: Be Steadfast

Scripture: Colossians 1:21-23

As I read this passage, what came to mind was the line from the hymn “Amazing Grace:” “I once was lost, and now am found.” This is what Paul is saying to the Colossians, they were once alienated and enemies of God and now have been found through the preaching of the Gospel – the Good News.

Now, the job is to live what we say we believe. This should be a lot easier for most of us who do not live in the fear of persecution and torture. In today’s world, however, it seems that those who do live with this fear, often are more faithful that the rest of us, and more willing to face death rather than to deny their faith. We need to take a lesson from the Colossians of the past as well as our contemporaries who are faithful even to death.

The temptations we face are nothing in comparison. What does it matter if friends want to spend a night drinking, or watching movies that go against everything we believe is right? Do we need to please our friends, or please God? We are also conditioned by the media to never be satisfied with what we have and often sacrifice time with our families to get that next best electronic toy, or the newest car or the better vacation.

This dissatisfaction can lead to covetousness and greed. We can still be lost in the world without even realizing it! We need to look more at how the promises of Jesus can keep us grounded so that we can remain steadfast in our faith, and stay “found.”

Prayer For Today
Lord, we are so happy that you have allowed us to know you and your promises through the Good News of Jesus, your Son and the Christ. Help us to stay grounded and steadfast as did our ancestors in faith. Amen.
