Our pastor shared these thoughts today. He spoke about the church at Colossal and how their relationship with God was evident by the fruit produced in their lives.
Jesus was enough for them.
Not Jesus + the right worship style
Jesus + the right bible translation
Jesus + superior knowledge and insight.
Just Jesus. Because of their willingness to put focus completely on him, the following fruit was produced in their lives.
Complete faith (belief and trust) in Jesus Christ.
Love for God's people.
They had this fruit because of the hope they had in Christ. It seems so simple, but definitely not easy. How great it would it is to be known for your faith in Christ and love for his people.
