What will you “Let” … into your life.

June 5, 2014

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:15 New American Standard

Are you “letting” the peace of Christ rule in your heart. It’s not a hard question. You know. It’s about the margin in your life .. the space and room to breathe .. to trust and rest in God’s faithfulness .. to let the Spirit of Christ be your strength .. and face today knowing that Christ is your life. It means you are not the cause of your peace. It is often our circumstances or even feelings that we use as the measuring rule of peace. God’s Word is very clear: “Christ is our peace.” It’s His life .. sinless .. nailed .. buried .. and risen that secures and assures our peace. What will you “let” rule your heart today? As this day begins and continues, are you letting Christ’s words live in your life? Is His Word the richest real estate of your heart and mind? What you begin to see shaped in your life is thankfulness. It’s no longer about you having to hold everything together. It’s not about you any longer. It’s about Christ filling your life with everything of who He is. And to do that … you “let” Him move in and remove anything that keeps you from living a life of thankfulness. It only takes a moment …

“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” Colossians 3:16 New American Standard

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
