How is your faith in Jesus? Do you ever believe that you’ve lost your salvation? Do you feel that you are “going through the motions” of Christianity without being certain it is even true?
A Living Bible paraphrase of Colossians 2:8 issues this command: “Don’t let others spoil your faith and joy with their philosophies, their wrong and shallow answers built on men’s thoughts and ideas instead of on what Christ has said.”
Where do we find men’s wrong and shallow thoughts and ideas? Most TV shows, movies, video games, and contemporary music resonate with such thoughts and ideas.
I have two questions for you. How is your faith in Jesus? And what are your entertainment choices?
Could the philosophies that fill your mind have hampered your relationship with Jesus? Can I suggest that you take the Christian Music Challenge by eliminating all negative entertainment choices and listening to Christian music exclusively for 30 days?For music suggestions and more information, check out www.TheChristianMusicChallenge.com.
