Colossians 4:5  Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. 

As we travel through this sin filled world we realize quickly that there are bad influences in some of the people in which we come in contact with.  He encourages us here in our verse to "walk in wisdom".  1Pet. 5:8  says, "Be sober, be vigilant;".  Then he says in our verse today, "toward them that are without".   Those that are without what?  The world is full of people that don't have a clue about true salvation.  We are traveling among a generation that is so shallow in their knowledge of a sovereign, all-knowing, supernal God.  The scriptures teach us in the book of Titus to speak the truth of God’s Word and move on.  When we are confronted by these that are “without” we must discern whether it is God’s will for us to even engage in a truth conversation with them or not.  Many times the Lord’s will is not for us to even enter the realm of gospel discussion with them.  Then on the other hand, sometimes it is His will to use us as a truth giver.  Discernment of the Spirit is vital. One thing for sure, we will be confronted by many that are “without”.  I have heard many that are without say; "God wouldn't send me to hell, I am a good person".  There are thousands that believe the same as this man.  The Word of God plainly states that "ye MUST be born again".  Yet again, we have those that are part of the persuading crowd.  Trying to persuade the world that Jesus is not the only way.  Brothers and Sisters, be careful who you allow to use your ears.  "Walk in wisdom".  There's false teachers and false doctrine on every corner.  1Timothy 4:1-2  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;  Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.  We will be faced with an ocean of people today that are deceived.  Be on alert for opportunities to allow the Lord to use the truth that is in you to present Himself to them.  Allow the Lord to grace your time today.  And Walk in wisdom toward them that are without.  Amen.

1Thessalonians 2:10  Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:


Our witness as a born-again child of God is extremely important.  Without a Christ-like witness we are ineffective in fulfilling our place as a Christian.  It is our responsibility to be an ambassador for the Lord Jesus Christ.    2Corinthians 5:20  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ… .  We represent Him to this lost world.  We are a form of truth being displayed before this society.  It is as if the Lord is announcing to the world, as He points to us, “This is what I can do for you and to you, if you would be willing to be saved by my grace”.  We must make Jesus look good!  Shame on us for the times we make Him look bad.  Those of us who are parents can remember the times when our children has behaved badly in public.  You had taught them and corrected them at home on how to behave and how to be respectful of others, then for some crazy reason they acted like heathens in public that day.  You were embarrassed to say the least.  What about all that good parenting you had done at home??  What about the discipline you had administered before??  At that moment, it appeared the child had never been corrected or parented… ever!  What in the world was going on?!  I can’t help but chuckle as our children are grown and gone now and I recall numerous situations just as described.  What caused this child to act out in such a way?  SIN!  We are born with that old sin nature.  It was given to us by our ancestor Adam.  The first Adam gave us sin.  But good news!  The second Adam gave us mercy and grace for our sin (1Cor. 15:35-49).   Hallelujah!  Notice a special word in our text verse for today.  Paul confesses that they behaved “holily” in the presence of the Thessalonicans.  That word is only mentioned this one time in the entire Bible.  Holily is actually described by the following words in the verse.  It means to be justly and unblameable.  It means to be pious and holy.  In other words, it means to act like a Christian, to behave according to our teachings of grace.  How many times have we acted unholy before the public?  After the Lord has spent much time teaching us, preaching to us and sharing His mysteries of grace with us and we act like a lost heathen.  My goodness, I feel conviction coming on already.  Dear friend, let’s make an extra effort today to make the Lord Jesus look good.  Let’s behave like we have a great Father that has wonderfully raised us up from the death of our sins through His marvelous grace.  We must behave holily.  Amen!

Proverbs 11:23  The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

2Peter 3:17  Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.  The risk of falling away from the path of grace is real and should not be ignored.  We often see and hear of Christians falling out, falling off and falling away.  I have said it myself and have heard many others say this statement; “If it were not for the grace of God I would fall too”.  Well yes, that is a true statement but… There is more to it than that.  It is the grace of God that saved our life.  It is the grace of God that keeps us and provides for us and even protects us.  But it is not just that existing grace that is in the Christian’s life that is keeping them from falling.  There is something we must all have if we plan not to fall away from the path of grace.  By the way, may I be clear that I am not referring to losing salvation, even though many that fall headlong into filthy sin is not even saved to begin with.  As a child of God, we have something that must be maintained that will keep us from falling.  This powerful thing is a product of grace itself.  It is a desire not to sin.  Notice in our text verse that the desire of the righteous is only good.  Dear friend, it most definitely is God’s wonderful grace that is keeping us from falling, but there is a product of grace that must also be present if we plan to stay the paths of righteousness.  A desire not to fall and to stay the course is a necessity.  We do not fall into the filth of sin because we have a stronger desire not to.  Now here is the real danger; if we do not maintain this desire not to sin then the desire will change directions.  Without daily maintaining a righteous path our carnal flesh will slowly but surely lead us and persuade us to desire sin more than grace.  Probably the biggest mistake is to subject our flesh to sin.  We must guard ourselves from filth.  We must keep ourselves from the temptation of sin.  We live in a day of easy sin.  This is the electronic age.  Sin is readily available on the devices of life.  Dear friend, take every opportunity to guard your self from sin.  Set every guard in place.  Maintain that desire NOT to sin.  And please guard your children.  If they have devices, keep them guarded from access to filthy sin.  If they get bit, they will become damaged by Satan’s poison.  So, we see that it is not just grace that keeps us from falling.  It is also the product of grace called desire that keeps us on this course of righteousness.  Amen.

Jude 1:20  But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

Jude is a book written to warn us of the apostasy, heresy and filthy of the last days.  These 25 verses are spot-on in the description of today’s society.  Apostasy is at an all time high.  Many Christians have fallen off the paths of righteousness and headlong into worldliness.  There are very few real Christians in society.  Heresy is like a tsunami wave of debris coming at us.  Take cover my friend!  Hide in the pavilion of the Lord Jesus.  It is sometimes discouraging as we witness many of our friends and family being overtaken by this storm of religious heresy.  Then there is the filthy magnitude of immorality that is swarming like killer bees.  Demons of immorality are lurking everywhere from the government to the schoolhouse.  Sins that boggle the mind of the born-again Christian, but yet entertain the wicked sinner are right before our eyes.  As a real Christian, the condition of society can be so discouraging.  We must be very careful not to allow this world to detour our confirmation of Home.  It is easy to become overwhelmed and give up and give in.  We must establish a strong prayer life.  Notice here in the book of Jude that we are delivered all the warnings to watch out for.  And then at the end of the book the Lord commands us to establish a strong prayer life.  My friend, a weak prayer life can cause us to wavier in discouragement.  We are commanded to pray in the Holy Ghost.  This is not just going to happen.  There are many other aspects to this type praying.  There is more to it other than just bowing our head in Jesus name.  First and foremost, we must be saved!  We must also spend daily time in the Word, daily time with the Lord in quiet meditation, desire and determine to live holy, attend a Spirit-filled and biblically sound church.  The list goes on, but you get the gist of the point.  To pray in the Holy Ghost means you are living in the Holy Ghost!  It is a lifestyle!  It is not something you turn on and off in convenience.  Praying in the Holy Ghost will build up our faith and strengthen us to live in the fervency and joy of our spiritual freedom.  Determine to adjust your lifestyle into a spirit-filled walk with the Lord.  It is a must if you plan to survive this journey in spiritual success.  Amen.    

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
