Hey, what happened to everyone? I leave the country and you all flee!! Just giving you all a hard time about the lack of interest in last week’s verses. I loved them but hardly anyone viewed them. I was excited about the flurry of interest in our prayer thread!
I’m in Mindanao in the Philippines. I almost didn’t make it out of Minneapolis because of a blizzard. Then I arrive here and it is 100. I love it! I really love the Filipinos and their culture and country. Please pray for my memorization as I’m away from my routine so it will be harder to memorize. I’ve been asked to speak at church tomorrow and I am going to share how profoundly the Lord has used Colossians 1 in my life and share through verse 20, where we are at. I walked around reciting our memory verses. Some thought that I was crazy but that’s OK because they are right! I just love blessing places with His Word.
This week we have the powerful verses that bring the verses we memorized thus far, to a head. “For in Him all of the fullness of God was pleased to dwell.” Word’s can’t add to that! Aw brothers and sisters, we are so blessed to know this and memorize it. How it ministers to our hearts. Then we get verse 20 but I’ll let you read that.
It’s Saturday afternoon here but Saturday morning for many of you. I am so privileged to be connected to the body of Christ. Please don’t give up on memorizing. These verses will save your lives and be used to save others as well. We can do it as we have been given the mind of Christ. I’m with you in Spirit as I speak tomorrow about these verses.
Look at these verses!!!
Colossians 1:19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell,
Colossians 1:20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. (ESV)
Colossians 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
Colossians 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. (KJV)
Praise God! I sure love you guys!
