My thoughts,...

We should seek the truth (Jn. 8:31-32), the narrow path (Mt. 7:13-14), pleasing God in worship (Jn. 4:24), united in fellowship with the faithful saints (Acts 2:42), this day of our Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 20:7). For we ought not soon forget the source of our blessings bestowed upon us (Heb. 2:1).

"Truly I say to you that one of you will betray Me -- one who is eating with Me." - Jesus

Our Lord and Master, a man spoken of by the prophets, capable of making whole the lame, curing the sick, controlling the weather, casting out demons, raising the dead, and knowing the inner most thoughts of the people. This man was betrayed by a friend, abandoned by His disciples, shunned and rejected from many of His kin, brought to death within the hands of godless men by His own Jewish family. They bore false witness against Him, they slandered Him, they corrupted the courts, they spoke all manners of evil against Him, falsely charging Him with baseless accusations. They labeled Him a deceiver, the Devil, a liar and murderer. He was innocent yet still they mocked, spat upon, flogged, whipped, ridiculed, slapped, and ultimately crucified Him in naked shame between guilty souls. His body bled, ripped, torn, and battered, before being buried.

For His remembrance commanded this hour, we partake of the communion, proclaiming His death until His return (1 Cor. 11:26). Only the foolish heaping burning coals among us would dare take His sacrifice for granted.

Yet through all He experienced, still He selflessly loved the soul of a repentant recipient (Lk. 23:43). And so now we have hope, the forgiveness of sins. Our Master Teacher did not remain within the confines of death. Our Lord and King conquered the evil one, and gave us a path into eternal life, spite the cost (ref. Acts 1&2).

"He paid a debt He did not owe
I owed a debt I could not pay
I needed someone to wash my sins away
And now I sing a brand new song
Amazing Grace
Christ Jesus paid a debt that I could never pay"

Be humble, brethren.
Learn to discern.

Yours servant,
SM

Rescued - Transferred - Redeemed
The Kingdom of His beloved Son

You've fallen asleep comfy in your bed, and a fire started in your house. You wake to panic as you become aware of your surroundings, trapped by a wall of lavalike heat. You find yourself in danger, where smoke and flames threaten your life. Your neighbors were capable of seeing the threat and had since called for help. The firefighters arrive on the scene and immediately find you in your bedroom--time for a rescue. Are you yet seen in a location of satety? No, not yet. There still needs to be a transfer from the site of dakness, smoke, and fire to an area of light, fresh air, and safety. And so the firefighters guide you out of certain death into a secure location. You have now been saved, not without damage, trauma, and loss. But you've gained your life and get to learn fowared another day.

You've become idle in your sinful behavior and practices. You wake to panic as you become aware of your eternal punishment. A neighbor cares for you enough to share Jesus with you. Will you obey the gospel?

The reception of forgivness was the desired result of all who willfully gave their lives to Christ, submissive to His spiritual operation (Col. 2:11-12). Paul, the apostle, speaking to his brethren in Colossae, was accurate in reminding them of their reconciliation. And how the Word of God they had chosen to hear produced fruit for the Kingdom. The Kingdom was God's preplanned location where all found within would have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

A domain needs a King, Christ Jesus. A Kingdom has boundaries, borders, law and order, and justice. This Kingdom is of a peculiar kind, and we should all seek first legal citizenry (Mt. 6:33). His Kingdom is the body, the church (Col. 2:1,18,24). The body for it has organic members all united for the purposed function--the church fo its assembly, it's family. The way in? Being a repentant believer confessing Christ, immersed into water calling on His name, in order to receive the forgiveness of your sins, being added to His Kingdom, local assembly (i.e. "rescued, transferred, redeemed"). 

This good news of Jesus Christ "was proclaimed in all creation" to give humankind a way out of the flames and sinful consequences. And we are wise to hear its call.

Is your house on fire?

Ref. Colossians 2:13-24

Your servant,

SM
