Good morning people who live a congruent life when seen and when unseen.
Colossians 2:5 NIV For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how disciplined you are and how firm your faith in Christ is.
Paul delighted in receiving a report about the church in Colossae; how disciplined they were and how firm their faith in Christ was, even in his absence.
One of the evils of this day is living with a mindset of “What can I get away with?”
This can creep into our relationships, into our work ethics, and even into our love for God and our service to Him. Many do well when others are watching, but can so often take the easy and compromising road when no one sees.
These are days when the Lord is looking for people who live what they profess and they profess what they live.
These are days when the Lord is looking for people who do everything as unto Him, not unto people.
These are days when the Lord is looking for people who are completely sold out to Him, both in the secret place and in the public place.
God is looking for some 24/7, wholehearted, fully-devoted, integrity-committed, kingdom-advancing champions of the faith.
Are you such a person?
