Thoughts for the Week

Colossians 3:1-17   

People around us in these times have their sights set mostly on the Covid virus, or perhaps, in this country, also on Brexit. We are told not to get absorbed with these things, but to focus on Christ. Just as God led His people through the wilderness, so He will lead us, both as a body of believers and as individuals. We need to have a sense of determination and of focusing on Jesus Christ.  So many things in our lives can act as distractions if we allow them to.

We can trust Him. Real trust in Christ comes from being focused on Him. There are so many needs around us, in the world or in the church, or in our own families. The greatest way we can be of help in these situations is not to try to sort things out in our own strength. The best thing we can do for those in need is to focus on the Lord Jesus Christ, get into His presence. The more we are deeply in His presence, the more we can bring others into that place too. There is none greater than Christ.

Look at the basic things of our Christian lives, be kind and forgiving to others as He is to us. From this place we can help one another and live together in His peace.

Standing somewhere in the shadows you'll find Jesus

He's the only one who cares and understands

Standing somewhere in the shadows you will find Him

And you'll know Him by the nail prints in His hands

Always waiting in the shadows you'll find Jesus

He's the one who stays when others fade away

Always waiting for your coming is your Jesus

And you'll know Him as the shadows flee away
