Title: The World vs The Word
Description: “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.” (Colossians 2:8-10)
It’s easy to live following the standards and perceptions of the world when they are all around us. The things we see, hear, touch, and know from society changes the way we live our lives ever so subtly. What are you taking in today? The Bible provides a great alternative perspective to life! It has all the answers to help us live our lives fully.
Are we able to discern between what the world says and what the Bible says? Are we consciously and actively seeking the truths from the Bible?
Let’s stand firm in what God says!
