Knowing the truth about Christian living invites us to live an ordinary life in an extraordinary way.

Today’s message entitled “How Shall We Then Live . . . Together?” comes from Colossians 3:18-4:6 where the Apostle Paul uses eleven commands to guide us in relating to our families, our workplace and all others in Jesus Christ.

Paul began chapter 3 by urging believers to “look above.” He has closed the chapter in the same way. Wives are to “look above” to Christ as their example of submission; husbands are to “look above” to Christ as their example of love; children are to “look above” to Christ as their example of obedience; slaves are to “look above” to Christ as their impartial rewarder; masters are to “look above” to Christ as their heavenly judge.

Spirituality is a matter of understanding our identification with Christ, having our lifestyle transformed, and honoring Christ in our relationships. Ordinary sounding stuff, but with Christ at the center, it becomes extraordinary indeed.
