In His Word Wednesday: Colossians 3:4
Colossians 3:4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
“We woefully shortchange our earthly experience if we, with well-meaning hearts, relegate Christ to the top of our list of priorities and demand that he stay put.
We’ve been taught to live by lists of priorities but, if marriage is second on my list, what will happen without Christ’s intervention? If children are third on our list, what will become of them if Jesus sticks to our church category and doesn’t invade our parenting? If friendships are fourth on our list, how can we ever hope to break our cycle of broken relationships without Him who is wholeness incarnate? Colossians 3:4 doesn’t call Jesus number one in your life. It says He ‘is your life’.
If it has something to do with us, then it has something to do with Him.
If we’re willing, God is our song when we are happy, our escape when we are tempted, our hope when we’re despairing, our joy in tribulation, our strength in weakness, and our immortality in dying. Ultimately, He Himself is our health.” - Beth Moore
May your echo the words of the hymn “It Is Well With My Soul.”
