Woman’s Bible Study
NLT 1991 version
(6) In the NLT it says that “and now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to live in obedience to him.” So that means since we accepted him we must follow him and turn from our sins. (7) “Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him, so you will grow in faith strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with thanksgiving for all he has done.” This verse depicts us as trees or at least that is what I see in this verse. The bible mentions us as trees in a few other places as well. But lets really pick this verse apart. How do you let our roots grow down in him?
(8) “Don’t let anyone lead you astray with empty philosophy and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the evil powers of this world, and not from Christ.” This verse is one of my favorite verses because it tells us that there are empty philosophies that sound knowledgeable, but they come from human thinking and from evil powers. One of those philosophies is evolution. Macro evolution is nonsense that is devised from human thinking. It sounds knowledgeable, but it isn’t. There are also more subtle philosophies which look good but are just as dangerous. Therefore, we need to be rooted and grounded in Christ Jesus and lining all things up with scripture. (9) For in Christ the fullness of God lives in a human body.” This verse lets us know that Jesus is the fullness of God in a sinless human body. (10) “and you are complete through your union with Christ. He is the Lord over every ruler and authority in the universe.” This doesn’t mean there are aliens it is meaning Jesus is above all rulers and principalities, because he is God.
