FOCAL TEXT: Colossians 2 vs 8 _►► ” Beware lest any man spoils you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”~》KJV》
GLORIOUS greetings, Cherished one. Philosophy and vain deceit are fashioned after the traditions of men and rudiments of the world. The rudiments of the world simply means the elements of the world. And these elements do not resemble or have anything Christ-like; These are carnal and natural and have no benefits to your Christian life. The rudiments meet the standards and conditions of the systems of the world. The world has their language, fashion, speech, songs, principles and lifestyles they subscribe to.
These shape their thinking and reasoning, but you are not of this world. The world opposes the person of Christ and twists the truths about the Messiah. There are a lot of human philosophical documentaries and theories in books and on the internet that are aimed to stand against the teachings of Christ, but beware of them.
Apostle John says “Don’t love the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the Father’s love isn’t in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life isn’t the Father’s but is the world’s” (1 John 2:15-16). When you pursue anything unlike Christ you are sure to end at where Christ cannot be found. Refuse to give in to the worldly elements. Eagerly pursue the things that are after Christ. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
Precious Father, I thank You for the ability to stay connected to the things that are fashioned after Christ and ignore the elements of the evil world. I am empowered by the Spirit to love only the things you love and act accordingly in Jesus Lovely Name. Amen !
Pray for greater empowerment to stay connected to things that are fashioned after The Christ.
