If It Sounds Too Good

Consider the source

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. Colossians 2:8

Our job is to love God, be captivated by His love for us, and returning His love should be our main focus in life. He created us to fellowship with Him, and when we get tangled up in the details, most of which come from man and the world, we tend to lose sight of the one basic principle; loving God.

Some will say my views are too simplistic, and rules and regulations are essential to a relationship with God. I admit that yes, God has rules and regulations, and we will follow them, but we must make sure we are following God’s rules, and not deceptive philosophy conceived by men. The best way I’ve found to accomplish this, is to focus on God and study His word. When we spend time with God, studying His word, He will explain things to us. He will speak to us via His Holy Spirit, and when He does, we will know it’s Him. We will know it, because it will feel right, and it will feel good!

Set your heart and mind on Jesus. Loving Him is the answer.
