See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy,
which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world,
rather than on Christ.
Jesus. See to it that you know Jesus!
We, each and every one of us, need to see to it that we know Jesus Christ. Really know Jesus…so that we will not be taken captive by anything less than freeing, life-giving love, grace and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We need to see to it that we know Jesus as the Eternal Word of God…as the Word made flesh…as God with us—Immanuel—who came as a man to live among us and to die for our sins. We need to see to it that we know Jesus…and His truth that only God in His Holy nature could give His life to take away the ugly destruction of sin in our nature which called for our death sentence. We need to see to it that we know…and believe…that Jesus died for our sins…that Jesus conquered death…that Jesus gives us His promise of eternal life with Him!
And when we see to it that we know…and believe…and continually grow and live in the knowledge of the love, grace and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ—then nothing of falsehood, hollow teaching, deceptive philosophy and human traditions can take us captive. Because the Lord Jesus Christ has already captured us with His love!
See to it that you know Jesus!
In love, peace and purposeful passion, Sylane
