Dive in and submerge yourself

 

A Devotional By Brother Shep

Today I’m thinking about swimming and how refreshing it is to jump in or dive into the deep water. You are submerged and you become lighter. A great book in the Bible about diving into Jesus, is the book of Colossians. In the 2nd chapter of Philippians verse 5 it says, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ,” that is kind of like jumping in the deep end of the water.

Colossians tells us in the 2nd chapter verse 10, “And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” We are submerged in Christ and we are complete in Christ. Colossians 3:1-3 is what I mean when I say that we ought to be submerged in Christ. «Read the rest of this article»

The People’s Bank of China said that it would allow greater flexibility in its currency, but cautioned that reform would be “gradual.” Home sales figures were weaker than expected in May, even taking into account the impact of the expiration of the homebuyer tax credit on April 30.
