Summer Sunset

View of the sunset from out our front door...
We are surrounded by all sorts of trees and see a small patch of sky.  Our sunsets look so different because we never see the horizon from our vantage point.  The sun is still setting very late in the evening and the angle of the sun rays makes for some very unique colors and lights around the clouds.

Much like the picture of the sunset, we all view from a different vantage point at various locations around the globe. Is the earth still the earth? Yes. Are we all viewing the same sun? Yes. The truth is fixed. It never changes. How we view ourselves in light of the truth should always be changing. The truth should never change. It is not going to evolve into something that better suits our sinful, selfish selves!

Who made this summer sunset possible?  Let's thank the sponsor of this program...

"Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:  for by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers:  all things were created by him, and for him:  and he is before all things, and by him all things consist."  Colossians 1: 15-17

What's the point of preaching and teaching? 

"That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."  Colossians 2:2-3

How can we possibly discern truth from error in this crazy world that we live in today that enjoys evil instead of good, and says of the good, that it is evil!!!???

One of my favorite verses in the whole Bible is Colossians 2:8.  I must add a couple verses previous because they are the key to preventing spoilage:  and I'm thinking there's an awful lot of spoilage going on among people here on this earth...

"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:  rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.  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. For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.  And ye are complete in him..."  Colossians 2:6-10a
