Colossians 2:8 “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
“Jesus never approved of putting the traditions of men above the Word of God (see Mark 7:1-13). What about you? Are you willing to change your life in order that God may use you or had you rather hold on to your tradition?
These three qualities, which I believe every Christian should exhibit: availability, expendability, and adaptability. We need to be walking with the Lord so closely that we ought to be ready to witness at a moment’s notice.
It is God’s ability and your availability. It is His power and your personality. It is His work and your witness. That’s God’s plan!
Pretend someone is walking toward you right now with the sole purpose of asking you how they can have a personal relationship with God. What would you say? Get ready to give an answer for the hope that is in you (1 Peter 3:15).”
