Last week we continued our brief excursion to consider the relevance and prominence of idolatry that is present in our world…and in our lives. We saw Jesus’ warnings and instructions to beware of things that can so easily consume our thoughts and absorb our investment. He taught us what real life really is and what should consume our thoughts and absorb our investment of time and resources.
Paul straightforwardly echoed Jesus’ words to the Colossians in chapter 3:1-4. The central point of these scriptures is abundantly clear – Christ should hold the central place in our lives. Christ should be at the center of your life around which everything else orbits.
