Bible Text: Colossians 4:2-6
Paul's final exhortation to the church in Colossae urges his readers to participate in God's mission to the world. He focusses on how we can participate in it through prayer and witnessing for Christ.
Bible Text: Colossians 2:6-15
Paul urges the Colossian church to keep their eyes fixed on Christ. The temptation and danger for any believer is to begin to think that Christ is not enough. The way that we grow in our faith and finish the race is by staying firmly rooted in him.
Bible Text: Psalm 19
In a world full of competing voices it is hard to know who or what to listen to. Psalm 19 majestically accounts for how God speaks to us today. It reminds us powerfully the importance of tuning into God's voice and having Gods word as our joy and anchor.
Bible Text: Psalm 2
In a world that seems diametrically opposed to God, and as our society tries to kick God out of the public sphere, you'd be forgiven for wondering who is actually in control. Psalm 2 sets forward a wondeful vision of the universal kingship of Jesus the Christ. We need not be intimidated by the those who appear to rule, but rather take refuge in Him who truly does.
Bible Text: John 12:20-36
Jesus speaks with such authority, and has perfromed such miraculous signs, that the people in his time were ready to make him King and to follow him wherever he led them. In our passage, Jesus reveals to them and to us, that being King does not mean what they think it means. We need to come to him on his terms and not ours.
