Empty vs Full

When we trust the opinion of others about us, we are doomed to empty deceit. When we are filled in him, the head of all rule and authority, we are blessed with Jesus Christ’s deified mindset. The shame of our sin has been nailed to the cross. Triumph ensues when the rulers/authoritues of the “world system” have been disarmed spiritually. In essence, Jesus brought heavenly rule to earth. We participate in the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord when we consider ourselves dead to the sins that had captivated our minds/bodies but made alive to the Spirit through obediance that comes from faith in Him. – Teresa #weaponsofrighteousness #IamnotalonebyKariJobe #FearisaliarbyZachWilliams
Colossians 2:8-23 English Standard Version (ESV)
8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits[a] of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. 11 In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead. 13 And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities[b] and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.[c]
