Starting yesterday, the new Winter 2015 HelloMornings challenge has started and today we are reading from Colossians 1:3-8.
I read the passage using my New Living Translation – Life Application Study Bible. This version of Bible helps me to understand more in English (I highly recommend this version for non-native English speakers, if you’re looking for an English Bible to read). On the footnotes, there are reflections, study notes and applications for every day life walking in faith and with the Lord.
This is one of today’s reflections & applications on studying Colossians 1:3-8 that I learned:
“God’s word is not just for our information, it is for our transformation! Becoming a Christian means beginning a whole new relationship with God, not just turning over a new leaf or determining to do right. New believers have a changed purpose, direction, attitude, and behavior. They are no longer seeking to serve themselves, but they are bearing fruit for God.
How is the Good News reaching others through your life?”
