My prayer today is that we all will live a life which continuously displays our love and humble obedience towards God who deserves all glory. I think we are pushed to the edge at some point where we want to do nothing but give our enemies some "unholy side-kicks". It is often easy for us to be "Christian" on a Sunday or when we're around other Christians, but God expects us to act like Christ in every way possible. Although life may be more challenging in some areas of living than others, God gives grace to live the life He has called us to live. This life is a Holy Life or a life of holiness. Colossians chapter 3 and 4 gives us guidelines and commands to help us live that life to the best of our knowledge: Family life, work life and public life.
What does Holiness look like in Family Life? (Colossians 3:18-21)
- Submission to your husband vs. 18
- A loyal love towards your wife vs. 19
- A humble obedience to parents vs.20
- A pleasant, unprovoked approach towards children vs. 21
All of these are commanded to us by God so that His name be glorified. Any direction away from these commands is unholy and should therefore be avoided.
