The Glory of Christ

At times, we wish we had a crystal ball to know the future. From the mundane, if it would rain yesterday for the Outdoor Market Day; to the significant, like where we will be in 10 years and what will our life be like. If we had a crystal ball, it would change how we live today.

In Colossians, we are told what our future is. We will share in the glory of Christ (Colossians 1:27; 3:4). And so this must change how we live today.

Last week (Col 3:1–8), we saw what it means individually; this week (Col 3:9–17) what it means for the local church; and next week (Col 3:18–4:1) at home and work.

The “crystal ball” is setting our eyes on Christ in heaven: remembering that Christ is all that matters; and that God doesn’t desire wealth, happiness, or success for us… but something far more glorious: to make us like Jesus Christ.

The uniform we wear each day and night is compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, forbearance, forgiveness, and the over-coat of love.

This only happens as the message of Christ dwells among us in all we do as the people of God, the local church.

In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
