We know the world is blind and deceived by the enemy. But Satan also strives to lead Christians astray through false doctrine and temptation. Just like Paul nearly 2,000 years ago, many pastors today long to see their congregations hold fast to the gospel and stand up to the enemy’s lies.
In this message, Dr. Stanley walks through Paul’s expression of concern for the Colossian church. It was his desire that they would stay committed to the faith and grow spiritually. Through this passage, Dr. Stanley points out six characteristics of faithful members of the body of Christ. They are:
- Strong in heart.
- United in love.
- Fully assured of their identity in Christ and His work within them.
- Immovable in their faith.
- Walking in Christ.
- Overflowing with gratitude.
How do you fair in this area of your life? Avoid false doctrine by staying committed to the faith, and you’ll experience the blessings of great spiritual rewards.
