Set Your Mind at Ease

Have you ever wondered  why do i do the things that I do? How do I need to focus my efforts on the way that I do them. I’m always wanting to be the best and see the most results. You notice the I in that previous phrase. My goal or verse that has inspired my life is from the incredible book of Colossians 3:17. It simply states that whatever I do whether in word or deed I do I do for the Lord Jesus Christ.I  love this verse, it keeps me aware of my surroundings at all times and continually lets me know that it’s not about me it’s about Jesus. I was reading in the last verses of Colossians and it sank in. A spiritual epiphany ,Paul is in prison and remarking about His love for the Church, amazing in itself, but he comes back and challenged me and my ministry right here and right now it says,

Colossians 1:26-29

This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time, but now it’s out in the open. God wanted everyone, not just Jews, to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory. It’s that simple. That is the substance of our Message. We preach Christ, warning people not to add to the Message. We teach in a spirit of profound common sense so that we can bring each person to maturity. To be mature is to be basic. Christ! No more, no less. That’s what I’m working so hard at day after day, year after year, doing my best with the energy God so generously gives me.

May that be my mission here and yours. No more, no less Christ!!!!! Jay
