In Christ Alone


I will not boast in anything
 No gifts, no power, no wisdom

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand

On May 28, 1972, the Duke of Windsor, the uncrowned King Edward VIII, died in Paris. On the same evening, a television program recounted the main events of his life. Viewers watched film footage in which the duke answered questions about his upbringing, his brief reign, and his eventual abdication.

Recalling his boyhood as Prince of Wales, he said: “My father [King George V] was a strict disciplinarian. Sometimes when I had done something wrong, he would admonish me, saying, ‘My dear boy, you must always remember who you are.’ “

It is my conviction that our heavenly Father says the same to us every day: “My dear child, you must always remember who you are.”

The record shows in Colossians: He is my all in all!

1:14 in Christ we have redemption
1:16 in Christ all things were created
1:19 in Christ all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell
1:22 we are reconciled in Christ body of flesh
2:3 in Christ we are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge
2:6 we walk in Christ
2:7 rooted and built up in Christ
2:9 in Christ all the fullness of deity dwells bodily
2:10 you have been filled in Christ
2:11 you were circumcised in Christ
2:12 in Christ you were raised up
2:15 triumphing over them in Christ
3:20 pleasing in the Lord
4:7 fellow servant in the Lord
4:17 the ministry that you have received in the Lord

Let us constantly remind ourselves of who we are [in Christ.]

  1. So much wisdom, instruction and comfort. If this were the only epistle I should think it all excellent information and enough to satisfy most questions regarding Christ’s sacrifice and what is expected of us as Christians. This would make the greatest Wed night Bible Study.
    Blessings!!!
