J.B. Phillips New Testament Colossians 03:09b-10 for you have finished with the old man and all he did and have begun life as the new man, who is out to learn what he ought to be, according to the plan of God.
Our lead verse really sheds outstanding light on the authentic state of any one who has believed in Jesus Christ; he/she has done away with the old man(with his/her limitations), has ushered a newness(in all) and is now called to live out God’s plan for him/her. Hallelujah!
Across the nations of the world men and women are always winning and loosing and as such they lead lives that are full of uncertainty. But it ought not to be so for the child of God who is submitted to Christ’s Lordship. Submitting to the guidance of Christ through the Holy Spirit is saying yes to living in the plan of God for you. Selah!
But you may ask; is this really so?Are you saying I’m called to walking in God’s purposes for my life? Oh yes beloved! Hear John 16:13 (TLB)When the Holy Spirit, Who is Truth comes, He shall guide you into all truth, for He will not be presenting His Own ideas, but will be passing on to you what He has heard. He will tell you about the future.
This day awaken to this special gift that’s availed to you in God. Commit to conquer every frontier that you are involved in. Make room for unending growth as you fully live out the plan of God for you. Hallelujah!
FURTHER STUDY: Ephesians 01:11-12(Msg) It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, He had His eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone.
Submitting to the guidance of Christ through the Holy Spirit is saying yes to living in the plan of God for you.
I’m new in Christ. I know no limits for I live and walk in the Unlimited God. I’m living out my God-set plan(and purpose) and blessing my worlds with God-reality. Hallelujah!
