This all makes me think about butterfly coming out of its cocoon about to take flight Let us fly! Colossians 3 verse 4 is so powerful and is really something each of us should reflect upon: "And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory. And I'm afraid that sometimes we don't really live our lives as if Jesus is indeed our life. He is! Or he should be Here's the thing. I've had a lot of conversations over the years with fellow Christians about who Jesus is to them.

And I've thought a lot about who Jesus is to me. And I think many of us can easily get to the point of saying, "well, yes, Jesus is my Savior. He saved us. We're into salvation!

But, I think sometimes it can get a bit fuzzier for us when we think about Jesus being our Lord - in addition to Jesus being our Savior. Meaning, if Jesus is our Lord, then we really need to take incredibly seriously and to heart Jesus' words and teachings in the Bible! And really allow Jesus to lead our lives. Transform our lives. Lord our lives. Well, I think this Colossians verse takes things even a step further.

Maybe we're at the point where yes, Jesus is our Lord and Savior. But now, Paul here teaches us that Jesus is our very life! That's big If you really stop to think about this and allow this into your heart you'll know how huge this is. Jesus is our life That's very good news! Our job isn't our life.

Our money isn't our life. Our health isn't our life. Even our family isn't our life - those these can all be good gifts. But none of these things are our life. Jesus is our life! Today, can you honestly say Jesus is your life? If not, will you begin to really think about this and pray about this? Is Jesus your life? Verses 12 through 14 of Colossians chapter 3 are awesome! Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another.

Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Do you think you can do each of these well using just your own will power? Or, do regularly pray to Jesus to give you these virtues within your heart and to bring them to fruition in your life? Can you allow love to lead within you? Will you allow Jesus to lead you? Colossians today is fantastic: "Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

How often is this true for us? Are there times when our conversation is un-graceful?

Ephesians: Ephesians chapter 5 verse 17 really stood out to me today: "Don't act thoughtlessly, but try to understand what the Lord wants you to do.

I am afraid in my case it is far too often.

I can sometimes sleep-walk through my day - or even days - or even weeks Paul teaches us here to try to understand what the Lord wants us to do. Why would we want to try to understand this? I think in large part so we no longer act thoughtlessly! How about you? Are you acting thoughtlessly at all these days? Will you seek to understand what God wants you to do? And then will you go do it and leave your thoughtless ways behind? Below is a nice image for Ephesians from today's readings:. We wrap up Paul's letter to the church in Ephesus today!

His letter to the church in Philippi begins tomorrow! Ephesians chapter 6 verse 7 stood out to me today - "Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. However, I think this verse works very well today for any of us that work a full time job. I'm sure you've probably seen movies or TV shows that make fun of working and basically encourage folks to work as little as possible when they are on the job.

I think this is a horrible idea!
