“By giving Himself completely at the Cross,
actually dying for you,
Christ brought you over to God’s side
and put your lives together,
WHOLE and HOLY in his presence.
You don’t walk away from a gift like that!
You stay grounded and steady in that bond of trust,
CONSTANTLY TUNED IN TO THE MESSAGE,
careful not to be distracted or diverted.
THERE IS NO OTHER MESSAGE —just this one.
Every creature under heaven gets this same Message.
I, Paul, am a messenger of this Message.”
Colossians 1:21-23 MSG
