Stewardship IS Good Leadership, Pt. 2
By Louie Marsh, 2-8-2023
Good stewards serve Jesus not Tradition.
1) WATCH OUT for counterfeit philosophies.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. Col. 2:8
- BASED ON HUMAN TRADITION
- Basic principles of this world
2) GRASP your fullness in Christ!
- BELIEVE that Christ is GOD in human form.
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, Col. 2:9
- FIND spiritual fullness in Christ alone!
and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority. Col. 2:10
SEAL this fullness through baptism.
In him you were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature, not with a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ, having been buried with him in baptism and raised with him through your faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead. Col. 2:11-12
For in Christ there is all of God in a human body; so you have everything when you have Christ, and you are filled with God through your union with Christ. He is the highest Ruler, with authority over every other power. When you came to Christ, he set you free from your evil desires, not by a bodily operation of circumcision but by a spiritual operation, the baptism of your souls. For in baptism you see how your old, evil nature died with him and was buried with him; and then you came up out of death with him into a new life because you trusted the Word of the mighty God who raised Christ from the dead. Col. 2:9-12 (LB)
