Peace be with you...

25: God has given me the responsibility of serving His church by proclaiming His entire message to you. ... 28:So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect in their relationship to Christ. 29: That's why I work and struggle so hard, depending on Christ's mighty power that works within me.

Colossians 1: 25, 28-29 NLT

We have been given a calling. A responsibility. A necessity and a command...we are to share the Word of God with a world seeking, searching and striving for peace. People all around us are looking for *something* that will tell them they don't have to be perfect, they don't have to have it all together, they don't have to do it all themselves...so why are we telling them that perfection is to be admired; they need this, this and this to get their lives together; and self-sufficiency is the best way to go? Why are we not taking them to the letters written for them in which they can find the peace they are so fervently searching for? To a book of letters written by The Very One who loves them more than they could ever imagine, is the perfection they so willingly admire, and holds all things together? Today let someone know that God sees them...and that His Word in its entirety tells them over and over again how very much He loves them. SHARE the Word of God in all it's fullness with a world looking for life.
