Col. 3:3

For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.

It’s all about Jesus. That is what this four chapter letter to the church in Colosse is all about. Paul, writing from prison in Rome, reminds the Colossians . . . and you and me . . . just who Jesus is, what he has done for us, and what it means to live life as a fully committed Christ follower. The Colossians were in danger of being sucked into believing false teaching about what God expected of them as Christians. They were in danger of making it all about themselves and what they could do instead of all about Christ and what He has done . . .it’s all about Jesus.

In my reading this morning I came across a couple quotes that give me food for thought today. I pass them on to you to think about as well . . .

R. A. Torrey is credited with saying, “If you make a great deal of Christ, He will make a great deal of you; but if you make but little of Christ, Christ will make but little of you.”

And Harold E. Kohn is quoted as saying, “The person who has the abundance of life Christ came to bring us can spend virtue lavishly because his resources are plentiful. He can care for people unreservedly, the people near him and all over the earth, people of his own creed, color, and nationality and those of other faiths, races, and nations, because his resources of care are attached to the limitless reservoirs of God’s care.

“He can afford to be slighted, shunned, hurt, because he has enough forgiveness in his heart for any crisis that comes his way. He can squander love upon the undeserving and the unresponsive because he knows there will always be more love where the last love came from.”
