Live Out What You Know to Be True
What’s the difference between knowledge and wisdom? Knowledge is the technical information where wisdom is knowing how to implement that information. Many Christians today have the head knowledge, but feel spiritually stuck. They know parts of the Bible. They can paraphrase verses, but they just feel like they are drifting in a spiritual ocean.
What’s the solution? Look at what Paul writes in Colossians 1:9-10:
“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.”
I once heard a motivational speaker say, motion creates emotion. If you want a hug, give a hug.
That’s kind of what Paul is saying in verse 9. He’s praying for that knowledge to become wise by walking by it. They have knowledge. They can always use more. But will they now walk in it?
If you want to become unstuck, be wise. Live out what you know to be true in Scripture. Take just one small step to live out the Bible that you do know, and it will propel you to learn more and do more.
Don’t wait to feel ready. Start today.
Text in Context: Read Colossians 3:1-14
Reflect: What is the way to spiritual life? How does the world clothe themselves? How does that compare to how Christians clothe themselves? How does this impact our spiritual progression?
Respond: We all have that favorite t-shirt. What old clothes do you still cling to that you know you need to put away for good? What clothing can you put on instead?
Prayer: Father, thank you for providing me with a new wardrobe that fits me perfectly. Help me to keep it on today. Amen.
