Re:Verse passage – Colossians 1:9-14 (day seven)

We are taught from an early age that the necessities of life are air, water, food, shelter, and sleep. These are the five things that we cannot live without, however, Scripture teaches something different. The Word of God tells us that the necessity of life is a relationship with the Lord, which only happens as described in Colossians 1:13-14:

For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Without that redeeming work of God death will not be contained by any amount of air, water, food, shelter, or sleep.

  1. We all need air, water, food, shelter, and sleep to survive and to revitalize. They are all basic human needs. But the highest need is God who is in control of the earth and all of our basic needs or basic necessities!

    God is the Creator of the earth, our Savior and Rescuer. As both the US and part of Canada are affected by the monster storm Dorian, I pray that He will provide all necessities to all personnel who are involved in the emergency and rescue mission for the Dorian’s disaster relief efforts and for all victims and affected personnel to return to a normal life as soon as possible.
