Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.Colossians 2:8
Do Not Get Captured
As a new believer (or even as a seasoned follower), you can be captured by empty philosophies and human thinking that is not grounded in the Lord. When I was younger, there were many phrases and beliefs that I thought were in the Bible. As I grew in His teachings and had a deeper understanding of His Word, I realized how many things I thought were in Scripture that actually was not. The more I questioned my thinking and beliefs, the more I grew in my walk with Him.
As believers, we must question what we hear and make sure it is lined up with scripture. If we do not, then we will find ourselves on a slippery slope. Take some time each day to read the Word, grow in your understanding and love for the Lord.
A Prayer to Remember
Give me longing for who you are and your Word. May my desire for truth and your Word be greater than my desire for the world.
