A Devotional By Brother Shepherd
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. Let me read those verses:
- “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God”.
- “Set your affection on thing above, not on things on the earth”.
- “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”
As a fish depends upon water, we should depend on Christ. A fish lives in the water, breathes in the water, and eats in the water. Take a fish out of the water and it dies. As the fish is dependant on water, Christians are dependant upon Christ.
This is Bro. Shep asking you to think about this.
