Read Colossians 2:8–12
The information superhighway has become increasingly clogged with misinformation. Social media and fringe news sites have made it very difficult to know what to believe. Ultimately, you can believe only trustworthy sources — ones with a proven track record of telling the truth. They are the ones that are proven right when the others have moved on to the next misleading, click-generating headline.
But, there is one thing that can be believed without doubt, and that is the death and resurrection of Jesus. Your status as a redeemed child of God hinges on that very fact.
Having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised with Him through your faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead (Colossians 2:12).
Faith in God leads to salvation. You must trust when you put your life in His hands, He will save you and care for you. God has demonstrated time and again He is worthy of your trust. Believe what He says.
Challenge for Today: Share your journey of faith with someone who trusts you.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Beautiful is what we see. More beautiful is what we understand.
Navigating cyberland, building for cyberland, etc., is a journey fraught with multiple trust issues on multiple levels – on the other hand – it’s nice to know, once I’ve done my best/what I know and still a problem, I can call out and say, “Okay – still not finding compassion in my heart over this one – SO, IF You could please – give me the strength, calm, insight to see what I’m missing OR take care of it, I’d appreciate it” – seriously, If it weren’t for this ‘back up option, once I’ve tried to do what I can? I still believe in the power for the collective good, of the internet/cyberland – but I also figure, here’s where the new battles are being fought – 🙂
Yes it is. Good to hear from you.
