Scripture: Colossians 2:11-15
We are told here that we were circumcised in Him in our heart, that we are buried with Him in baptism, we are raised with Him through faith, we are dead to trespasses and sins, we are alive together with Him, we are completely forgiven and He has wiped out the handwriting against us and nailed it to the cross. The end of this progression is in verse 15 which states, “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.” We, the Church, must supply the action that goes with the revelation of verse 15. Are we acting? Do we believe Jesus spoiled principalities and powers? Do we pray His hand on leaders who are attempting to spoil the church? Do we pray against the educators who have spoiled Christian history and rewritten it? Are we praying the justice of God on all the places where it needs to fall? If we aren’t, it is time we started!
