Message of the Day: Road to Spiritual Maturity

Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.” (Colossians 1:28, NKJV)

Some of the Colossians, confused by the clever arguments of the false teachers, might be tempted to accept their teaching. They might think that this teaching is more advanced, and therefore nearer the truth, than what they heard from Epaphras. Paul emphasizes that the gospel he and Epaphras preach is the only gospel. It has the authority of Christ, and its genuineness is proved in the experience of those who preach it. Paul illustrates all this from his own life.

The Gnostics appoint themselves teachers, but Paul was appointed by Christ. By enduring sufferings in the service of Christ, he is sharing in the sufferings of Christ. Paul’s message reveals to people the plan of God that he had not been made known to previous generations. This secret plan is that Gentiles are to be his people, indwelt by Christ.

The day we have been brought to know Christ, we were taught and instructed so that we might grow to spiritual maturity. We all know that much hard work is necessary in order to reach this goal. It just right for us to thank our spiritual mentors and those who travel with us in this road to maturity!
