Colossians 1:6 NLT:. This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.
My beloved friend in Christ, you will agree with me that the Goodnews of our lord Jesus Christ changed your life and made you who you are today. This shows that there is power in the good news. It has the ability to transform a sinner into a Saint and bringing out a better version of you. You don’t really know yourself until you encounter Christ in the good news. It is called Goodnews because it shows us the truth about God’s wonderful grace.
You might have people in your life and family you want their lives to be transformed, share the Good news about God’s wonderful grace and mercy with them. Complaining, crucifying and insulting such people will not solve anything. It will only make things worse. The antidote to hunger is food but the only antidote to sin is Christ.
In our text today, we see the testimony of Paul about the people of Colossie, how that their lives where changed after hearing the good news of the word of God. Now that you know that the good news is able to transform lives for the better, open up to people and share the Good news with them. By doing so, God will intervene and turn their lives around.
Declare to yourself loud: I am transformed by the word of God .
- God our father, let the transformation that has started in me, flow continuously.
- Precious Holy Spirit, may the world testify of your goodness in my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
- Please add your personal intentions.
