Am I Making God a Priority?
I wasn't making TIME for God in my life
So, just a couple of weeks ago, I started getting up early before my day started to spend time in prayer and in the Word. And so this is kind of a reflection of that a little bit. I went through Ephesians and Philippians and just wanted a platform to share my thoughts on it.
Daily Christian Podcast Was Born.
With zero expectation of anybody actually listening, commenting, or sharing any of this, I started recording how God was impacting me through this devotional time. In Colossians, chapter four seems like a weird spot to start, but I’m just starting podcasting in the middle of what I’ve been doing the last couple of weeks.
Colossians Chapter 4
I'm not going to go to Prison
- I’m not going to go to prison.
- I’m not going to be killed.
I think the worst thing that might happen is maybe somebody doesn’t want to talk to me anymore or thinks I’m weird and kind of stays away from me. That stands out to me a little bit. In addition to that, he ends this little section by talking about how our conversations really should be.
Adding Salt to the Conversation
- Full of Grace: I think personally for me because I’m not really judgmental towards people; I think that comes easier for me. I can be graceful and encouraging because that’s where my heart is. The hard part for me is to be seasoned with salt.
- Seasoned with Salt: This was written 2,000 years ago. So, being seasoned with salt isn’t really about making your food taste better as much as it is about preserving your food. This is way before refrigeration. Salt was used to prevent things from rotting. To have salt in your conversation is to be sprinkling in the truth of their need for God and the truth of Jesus Christ, the Gospel, and the good news.
