I want you to know how much I struggle for you, for those in Laodicea, and for all who haven’t known me personally. 2 My goal is that their hearts would be encouraged and united together in love so that they might have all the riches of assurance that come with understanding, so that they might have the knowledge of the secret plan of God, namely Christ. 3 All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden in him. 4 I’m telling you this so that no one deceives you with convincing arguments, 5 because even though I am absent physically, I’m with you in spirit. I’m happy to see the discipline and stability of your faith in Christ. (Colossians 2:1-5, CEB)
My goal is that their hearts would be encouraged and united together in love.
That they would have the assurance that comes with understanding.
We struggle for all who have and who have not met us. We share the love, mercy, and grace we received so that all may come to the assurance of understanding that Jesus made a way and showed us what it means to love.
All need to hear and know, and understand that they are loved.
All need to hear and know, and understand that they are accepted.
We need to make our goal to let all hearts know they should be encouraged and united, because that is what God sent Jesus to tell us, and God is sending us to tell the world the same.
Understand you are loved, as you are, and we need to be there for all.
Love People. Love God.
