Stay Home

Col. 1:21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.

How incredibly well-off we are with God! How wonderfully practical it is when we think of each other in keeping with how God thinks of us. He's right about us: He has made us holy, without fault and free from accusation--don't be moved away from that. It's when we're lured away from the awesome truth of how God has made us (holy and faultless) that demonic and fleshly accusations begin to find their mark in our minds. Nothing has changed concerning our condition, but everything begins to change in our believing.

The point? Don't be moved away from the gospel of God's grace to us in Christ. Stay at home! For you and me, it's reality.
