Act Like It

November 22, 2015

If you’re serious

about living

this new resurrection life

with Christ, act like it.

— St. Paul, Colossians 3:1

Was St. Paul a United Methodist?

He’d sure make a good one. In our Bible verses for this weekend, he calls us to get busy, which sounds like a United Methodist Christian talking:  “If you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it.”

How do we do that, Paul?

“Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective.” (Colossians 3:1, 2)

That’s easier when we’ve been in corporate worship and a faithful small group.

Today’s a good day for that.
