To Do...or To Believe? Or Both?

Passage:Colossians 2:6-19

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Right doing and right believing are not simply equal options that we can choose from and carry on as valid but separate paths. If our right doing does not flow from right believing, we will believe anything and twist it to our own purposes. If our right believing does not lead to right doing, it is in vain. Therefore true Christianity understands the right relationship between right believing and right doing, and that right believing comes first and then of necessity leads to right doing. This is Paul's very message in Colossians chapter 2, as well as Jesus's own teaching in Luke 12 where he give to his disciples the Lord's Prayer.
