TEXT: COLOSSIANS 2:6-8
(6) As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
(7) Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
(8) Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
KEY VERSE: MARK 7:7
Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
It is possible for those who have believed in Jesus to be spoiled. Yes, with your commitment and dedication you can be spoiled. The bacterial that spoil a Christian is called philosophy of men. This can take away the anointing from you. What is philosophy? It is the reasoning of men that formed their belief; coming from the thought and reasoning of the same men.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Knowledge of God is far from human reasoning. The knowledge of God comes by revelation. God will destroy every negative idea of men. True success is based on the Word of God, not on ideas of men. The just shall live by faith. To the world, the way of God looks foolish. The philosophy of this world believes that life cannot be deeper but life is absolute.
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
By reasoning men rejected the way of God for man’s salvation. Be careful that they don’t set before you natural principles, making you fall from faith. Take the Word by faith and not by reasoning. If you apply reasoning, you will not accept the teaching of holiness because they will be foolishness to you.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Let no man deceive you.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Hallelujah Jesus conquered the world
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: 1 Kings 10-11, Luke 24:1-35
