Daily Dig: 3/28/20

Scripture: Colossians 3

There is so much in this chapter.

There is so much we, as believers, can apply right to our lives today:

First:

3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Therefore

Put to death:

  • sexual immorality
  • impurity
  • passion
  • evil desire
  • covetousness
  • anger
  • wrath
  • malice
  • slander
  • obscene talk
  • lies

Because you “have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.”

Own that.

And put on:

  • compassionate hearts
  • kindness
  • humility
  • meekness
  • patience

And BEAR WITH ONE ANOTHER…

FORGIVE.

And LOVE…

14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

Forgiveness + Love = PEACE

“And be thankful.”

Let me say that again…

“And be thankful.”

And fill up your tool belt with TRUTH, because the fiery darts of the devil will not cease in this life. You need the Word to fight Satan’s lies!

…teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

The Word is living and active! Take it into your heart! Fill your mind and soul with Life! And, one more time, give thanks.

Finally:

No more trying to please people.

Please the Creator instead; people will benefit from the run-off.

Oh, and give thanks.


Journal: You guessed it…write a prayer of thanksgiving. Count your blessings.


Move: Long run today. If you can, run 8 miles. Does that seem daunting? Go out for 1 hour and 20 minutes and run/walk. Still too much? Go for an hour. Still no? 30 minutes.

Just move.

{Beginner’s run #15: Walk 5 minutes to warm-up, then run 7 minute/walk 1 minute x3, then walk 5 minutes to cool-down.}


Praise the Lord, and keep showing up!

  1. Love your passages today, what a blessing God’s word is!!! 🙌🏻 In today’s times it seems to have Even more meaning and strength. Hebrews 3:13 “But exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.“ Thank you for your daily encouragement! ❤️🤗
