Word of Faith > Bringing Every Thought Captive To The Obedience Of Christ

By: Martin Cisneros

12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering;
13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. (Colossians 3:12-17 NKJV)

Putting on love as the bond of perfection and letting the peace of God rule in your hearts is only going to be accomplished to the degree that the Word of Christ dwells richly in your heart and to the degree that from that you’re saying and doing everything that you’re saying and doing in the Name of Jesus. This short passage of Scripture mentions being thankful twice. That’s not without significance. Giving thanks for the finished work of Christ and your stand of faith for your deliverance as the necessary consequence of His shed Blood and broken Body goes a long way towards your putting on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another.

You’re either nursing and rehearsing the curse that’s trying to work it’s way into your life, or you’re actively participating in the redemptive processes of the New Testament towards seeing the application of the Blood of Christ to every relationship that you have, to everything that you own, and to every purpose of God for your life. You’ll not deal in both bitter and sweet water at the same time. Either your tongue is set on fire of Gehenna or your tongue is set on fire from the Holy Spirit. At absolutely all times you’re either a part of the problem or a part of the solution. For every situation that you can think of, and for every person that you can think of, if you’re seated with Christ in heavenly places, then you’re either a part of the problem or a part of the solution. What you curse, you will not inherit a blessing from or regarding.

For the idols speak delusion; the diviners envision lies, and tell false dreams; they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; they are in trouble because there is no shepherd. Zechariah 10:2

 

Unless otherwise noted, Scripture quotations are from a solid Center Column Reference Study New King James Version Bible. Where Center Column Reference alternate renderings are preferred, they're not always noted on the site at the time of their usage in a given context, if there's a discrepancy between our quotation and a NKJV that our site's visitors use that's missing the Center Column Reference notes that provide more literal renderings, alternative Hebrew and Greek manuscript variations, etc. Sometimes an "Understood Subject" from the given chapter of the Bible or the particular book of the Bible (perhaps previous chapter) is given attention to while teaching. Reading (and rereading) each book of the Bible [in it's entirety] that's being quoted from in the midst of each subject is [always] greatly encouraged for added clarity! While we're [deeply] supportive of what's understood to be orthodox Christian doctrine on all matters, we're always looking for what God's ADDITIONALLY saying to us in each subject being taught.
