By Jeff Goins Writing I was reading a blog the other day, and it kind of depressed me.
Video October 21, Colossians, Chapter number 2.
If it's okay with you, I'm going to take this coat off, because I can't preach with a coat on. I'll put this here, if that's all right. Colossians Chapter number 2. I want to bring your attention down to verse number 6. The Bible says there in verse 6, it says, "As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him.
We know that the will of God for every man, woman, and child is that all men would receive Christ Jesus the Lord. If you're here tonight, and you have done that, you've accepted Christ as your savior, say amen. Hopefully all of you have, and don't leave here tonight without doing that, if you haven't.
You've got to understand that that's just step number one.
God wants all men to be saved. God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. After that, God's will is that we would walk in him. Look at verse 6 again.
Then he uses this word, "established. God's will is that people would be saved. God's will is that people would be baptized, and God's will is that they would be taught to observe all things whatsoever Christ commanded us.
God's will is that we would all be established in the faith, that we would be rooted down, that we would be built up in him. I want to preach to you tonight about this idea of getting rooted down, and specifically, about the number one way, the number one way that someone can get established, that someone can get rooted, that someone can get built up in Jesus Christ, and that way is through daily Bible reading.
The Bible teaches, and I will show you tonight I want to give you a few thoughts tonight. I want to give you three points tonight on the idea of, what happens to people who do not read their Bibles?
At our place, I encourage our people to take notes. If you have a pen, if you've got a piece of paper, you like to take down notes, I'll give you some points. Point number 1 tonight: People who do not read the Bible get led astray.
You're there in Colossians Chapter 2, look at verse number 4, just real quickly.
Colossians Chapter 2 and verse 4, the Bible says this. They've got a smooth presentation, and they want to beguile you.
They want to deceive you. They want to trick you. Notice verse number 8. It says, "Beware, lest any man should spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit.We read books for many reasons, but you don't have to feel that it's an academic experience (if you don't want it to be).
You can read the book to enjoy it. You can pick up a book and have an unforgettable experience: laugh, cry, or sit on the edge of your seat.
