Wisdom Wednesday

My Wisdom Wednesday selection is not from Proverbs today, but from the book of Colossians. We don't need The Secret, or The Laws of Attraction or The Power of Now...we just need Jesus. In Him, we are complete.

Don't let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers* of this world, rather than from Christ. For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.
Colossians 2:8-10 NLT

* or the spiritual principles

This especially touched me today.....I have been reading my mama's journals and on one particular day she wrote "I just want Jesus!" Through all the trials in life at the end Jesus is all we have!

Amen, Nancy!! How wonderful that your Mom has shared her journals with you...what a treasure-house you have!

Ugh! We get bombarded at every street corner by some flavor of Christianity. Makes me want to scream like Paul to the Corinthians, "Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?"
