Listen Then Follow

To live your calling requires spiritual openness and attention.

Colossians 1:9-10

We do not cease praying for you and asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding to live in a manner worthy of the Lord, so as to be fully pleasing, in every good work bearing fruit and growing in the knowledge of God.

This is certainly St. Paul’s wish…not only for the congregation at Colossae…but for all people today reading it.

Read it again…but this time substitute your name for “you”.

His prayer is then: “We do not cease in praying for (your name) and asking that (your name) may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding to live in a manner worthy of the Lord, so as to be fully pleasing, in every good work bearing fruit and growing in the knowledge of God.”

We need to let go of our ego’s desire to be right…and allow God’s wisdom to be revealed to us so as we might then live the life we were meant to live.

Is your life “bearing fruit”?

Are you “growing in the knowledge of God”?

Make sure to spend time in silent meditationlisten to the yearnings of your heart…and then…follow.
