Welcome Tube family 
We hope you are loving reading Colossians with us.
If you would like to get in touch to ask questions, ask for prayer, check-in, or just generally chat, then please email joff@tubestation.org.

Colossians 3:1-3:17

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices, and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

To be a fool for Christ

1 Peter 5:7.
“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”

Thank you Lord for caring for, and carrying us over recent weeks, we give our cares to you just now, because we know  —
“Your Grace has brought us safe thus far, your grace will lead us home”.

We remember before you that this is a worldwide pandemic we are living through,  and we pray today for those in countries that lack medical care, PPE, clean water and healthy food. Where Overcrowding and Unhealthy living conditions increase the infections. 
Lord as our hearts break for them, we know yours does too. We cry out to you,  
PLEASE  Send help To them.

And Lord, when this is over, 
May we never again take for granted,  the handshake of a friend,
Conversations with neighbours,
A car journey to see the sea.
The taste of communion,
Our favourite sport, swimming, surfing, football.
Full shelves at the store,with no queuing.
Coffee with a friend, a hug,
Each deep breath, life itself.
Lord, when this ends, 
May we find that we become more like the people you want us to be.
And may we stay that way, better for each other, and better for the world.

Amen.

Each week the preacher is going to recommend something to hopefully enhance your week

Instead of a podcast this week try and embrace being a fool for Christ atleast once. discover what the upside-down Kingdom of Jesus Christ looks like in your life.

Francis of Assisi would live by one prayer that he would repeat all day to help him always put on the mind of Christ. 
He would simply repeat
"My God, my all."
