So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17
Yesterday, we sat down to a table filled with all kinds of DELICIOUS, MOUTH-WATERING, foods, which when consumed, FILLED our stomachs. Some stomachs were FILLED to the brim and caused us to want to sit around and snooze some. While for others, it was FUEL for them who would be out in a few hours, scampering and literally fighting for items in their trek of BLACK FRIDAY. Food is actually FUEL for our body’s functions. It helps strengthen our muscles, and it helps our eyesight, skin, hair and teeth. So it is important to FEED the body the FOOD that will BE BENEFICIAL to the PROPER WELL-BEING and FUNCTION of its VITAL PARTS. When it is FED the food that is NOT GOOD, it can DAMAGE the muscles, eyesight, skin, hair and teeth.
So it is with our SPIRITUAL BODY, we MUST do certain things to KEEP it HEALTHY and STRONG. First we NEED to START out by LIVING our LIVES in Christ Jesus. We do that by TURNING AWAY FROM the TEMPTING, TANTALIZING, MORSELS of SIN, and TURNING TO Him for the GOOD, NUTRITIONAL FOODS, such as READING, STUDYING and OBEYING His Holy Word, which produces RIGHTEOUSNESS, and will KEEP us ROOTED and BUILT-UP in Christ, and the SPIRITUAL FULLNESS will STRENGTHEN our FAITH, as we LIVE HEALTHY SPIRITUAL LIVES according to God’s Word. This will FILL our SOULS with SPIRITUAL FULLNESS, and will HELP us thwart off the FIERY DARTS of Satan, and FILL our HEARTS with THANKFULNESS.
And it will give us the SPIRITUAL STRENGTH to do whatever we need to do, in the name of the Lord Jesus, and to give THANKS to God for ALL of the SPIRITUAL FULLNESS we NEED. Are you experiencing SPIRITUAL FULLNESS? Or are you “SPIRITUALLY ANEMIC” and in NEED of some “SPIRITUAL FOOD?’. If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are VERY SPIRITUALLY ANEMIC, and on the verge of DYING SPIRITUALLY. In order to be made SPIRITUALLY WHOLE and HEALTHY, with ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven, and ESCAPING Hell and ALL of its HORRORS, with no WAY of ESCAPE, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your life of sin and TURN to GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and experience “SPIRITUAL FULLNESS” for your HUNGRY SOUL. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
