Sharing one of my favorite versions of Colossians 2:6-7. It’s from The Book – a Living Bible paraphrase of the scriptures.
In very simple language, it states a very powerful truth that so many people need to hear: that God loves them. And by living daily with His Son Jesus, by abiding in Him through prayer, worship and time spent in the Word, we all will have the strength, help, love and mercy we all so desperately need:
Colossians 2:6-7 Living Bible (TLB)
6 And now just as you trusted Christ to save you, trust Him, too, for each day’s problems; live in vital union with him.7 Let your roots grow down into Him and draw up nourishment from Him. See that you go on growing in the Lord, and become strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with joy and thanksgiving for all He has done.
You matter to God. He created you to abide (live) in Him.
Praying that you will experience His love and care for you in a tangible way today!
