Tuesday Message Review

STOP and read Colossians 2:6-7
Paul assures us that however imperceptible it may be, we are being built up in Christ. We are always an on-going construction project. A brick here, a board there, but always and persistently being built up by divine grace.
Yes, every so often we dismantle what God has done, tearing down his handiwork and experiencing momentary, though painful, disintegration. But God will not give up on us. What he began by grace, he’ll finish by grace.
The building will be completed. Our souls will grow in conformity to Christ and one day we will be like him for we shall see him as he is (1 John 3:1-3).
I don’t know about you, but it helps for me to know that. I desperately need to be reassured that my life, body, soul, and spirit are rooted in Christ and what he has done for me. Being rooted and grounded in my own good intentions or the promises of other people or whatever success I might attain doesn’t do much when life stinks and my soul sinks. I need to know that I’m rooted in Jesus.
It’s so great to know that he’s still at work in us, slowly but surely building up what we’ve torn down, conforming and shaping our soul to look like his.
Be comforted today – Christ is working in you today!
