Reading for Day 27
September 27

Col. 3:18-25
Psalm 22:19-31

Prov. 5:15-21


Reading through Colossians 3 we discover a new life and a new focus.

When we come to Christ some radical things take place. All of a sudden we are not helpless to navigate life with our power alone. In fact, the entrance of this new power is described as putting off the old man and his ways and putting on the new man.

This new man thinks differently and is like the one who created us. This is no simple revision of who we are. The difference is described like this, we died and are now hidden in Christ. This is new life.

We are also given a new focus. Ordinary things we do and say are to be done in the name of Jesus. These ordinary things if done with this new focus can be done not only for the people around us but for the Lord Christ. So when I love my wife and parent my kids I do it for them but I should also know that doing a good job in these areas also pleases the Lord. He wants me to be a great husband and father. When I do the ordinary jobs that go with my weekly tasks I do them for the Lord. The mundane, ordinary and sometimes tedious and routine things can take on greater meaning when I remember that I do them for the Lord. So how do I serve the Lord? I serve the Lord in everything I do. God wants me to get it right and to be the best I can be and when I do this, I am serving the Lord.

God leads me to be all I can be everywhere I am. This is something to think about.

I think the Proverbs portrayal of sin as a trap catching and holding us is especially significant to me. So often I think we trivialize our sinful actions with rationalizations and justifications. I think we fail to see how truly ugly sin is to God. Knowing the wages of sin is death, this Proverb puts it all into perspective. Sin holds us captive, we will die for lack of self-control and be lost for folly. Thank God we have a Savior who has rescued us from ourselves and sin's ugly hold on us!
