Leading a Godly Life
The book of Colossians calls us to lead a godly life. Chapter three describes the life of a person who has been made new in Christ, calling us in verse two to set our mind or affection on things above.
As you spend time praying, I hope you will be encouraged to put aside the things of this world that threaten to pull you down and instead earnestly seek the Lord, for He is worthy of our affection and praise. May you commit today to leave behind whatever is hindering you from leading a godly life.
The best way to set our minds on things above is to spend time reading God’s holy word each day. If you don’t already do this, I encourage you to join me in reading through the Bible with a yearly reading plan.
There are so many concerns we can and should pray about right now, but I encourage you not to grow weary or be discouraged by what is happening in our world. We can pray expectantly because, as it says in James 5:16b, “The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”
