Dear Fellow Servants
Please don’t feel pressured by this post, that I am posting our new verses earlier all of the time. As you know, I am in the Philippines and the time is 13 hours ahead of where I live. In addition, we are heading to a church in the mountains to fellowship with them. I’m leaving shortly so wanted to get this out even if it is early.
Every week, I am impressed by how rich the verses are. To consolidate, I post in the ESV and KJV for comparison. They are quiet different this week where the KJV contains part o fa verse in 21 that the ESV has it in 22. If anyone would prefer different translations, please let me know. It is just good to compare 2 versions side-by-side.
I’m having more difficulty staying abreast with my memorizing here, but I need to just do it. I am asked to preach again this Sunday, and I will use a chapter that I’ve memorized as what I want to share just bubbles up from within. I’m so grateful for all of you willing to give it a shot. I know that many of you are whining that you are having a hard time keeping up, but who am I to say this, but I am proud of you that you are giving it your all. You and I will never regret it.
Colossians 1:21 And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds,
Colossians 1:22 he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, (ESV)
Colossians 1:21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
Colossians 1:22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: (KJV)
May Jesus show you something that you never saw before! I love you!!
