Connection!

We pray today that our Creator, the Holy one, the omnipresent one, is in full control in our lives because we have submitted all in His Hands and we come with expectation in His presence with a thankful heart. I pray that we remain connected with Him and what it is important in our relationship with Him. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, amen!

How is your day today? Wherever you are, whatever you do at this moment, just cease for an instant and think of Him and how great He is and how greatly He loves you, each one of you and us. Let’s give thanks!

What is our connection with Him? Do we nourish our connection and keep it the priority in our lives? A question to ask ourselves again and again, a question that helps us to keep the perspective and not lose our scope in life.

It is written in Colossians 2v19:

“He has lost connection with the Head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.”

It is interesting to read the verses before the 19 and understand fully what it says. You see, the connection with the body is based on the connection with the head. Symbolism applies in this verse and means that Jesus Christ who is the head of the body – the church, all truly Christians together. When we are believers, we become part of the body, right? But all happens and grows only when we continue to be connected with the Head – the Lord! We might be part of the body but not really have the real connection! Do you understand what it says?

It is like our own physical bodies. We have a body, right? When we are not connected with our head – our brain stop functioning correctly – we still have the body but what is its use at the end of the day? We know well in our great scientific age how important our brain is for our physical and emotional existence!

Do you realize the meaning of how truly remain connected with the Body, through and only through Jesus Christ who is the Head?

I pray that we start looking the church – the gathering of people – in a new perspective today and put first things first: first our connection with Christ and then all rest activities!

Amen!

Love,

Dimitra

  1. A true disciple of Christ is one that does follow him in duty, and shall follow him to glory. He is one that walks in the same way Christ walked in, is led by his Spirit, and treads in his steps, whithersoever he goes. Let him deny himself. If self-denial be a hard lesson, it is no more than what our Master learned and practised, to redeem us, and to teach us. Let him take up his cross. The cross is here put for every trouble that befalls us. We are apt to think we could bear another’s cross better than our own; but that is best which is appointed us, and we ought to make the best of it. We must not by our rashness and folly pull crosses down upon our own heads, but must take them up when they are in our way. If any man will have the name and credit of a disciple, let him follow Christ in the work and duty of a disciple. If all worldly things are worthless when compared with the life of the body, how forcible the same argument with respect to the soul and its state of never-ending happiness or misery! Thousands lose their souls for the most trifling gain, or the most worthless indulgence, nay, often from mere sloth and negligence. Whatever is the object for which men forsake Christ, that is the price at which Satan buys their souls. Yet one soul is worth more than all the world. This is Christ’s judgment upon the matter; he knew the price of souls, for he redeemed them; nor would he underrate the world, for he made it. The dying transgressor cannot purchase one hour’s respite to seek mercy for his perishing soul. Let us then learn rightly to value our souls, and Christ as the only Saviour of them.
