Short Reads to Stimulate Long Thoughts


Tuesday 12-05-2017 Colossians 4  7-9  QT

As to all my affairs, Tychicus, our beloved brother and faithful servant and fellow bond-servant in the Lord, will bring you information. For I have sent him to you for this very purpose, that you may know about our circumstances and that he may encourage your hearts; and with him Onesimus, our faithful and beloved brother, who is one of your number. They will inform you about the whole situation here.

Terry, who in your past are you keeping informed concerning Our present circumstances and Our continued involvement with each other?  Think!  Why would this be important to Us, especially Me?


  1. That we might be an encouragement to each other in our commitment to Jesus.
  2. To know that Jesus is continuing to build-up His Church through our continued involvement with Him.
  3. It is an opportunity to be an influence in each other’s lives.
  4. It demonstrates the Oneness of Christ’s Body as His Church.
  5. It helps keep both parties accountable, with our expressions of faith, in response to our intimacy with Jesus.
  6. Keeping in touch stimulates fresh boldness in our present expressions of faith.
  7. Keeping in touch in the Name of Jesus, keeps HIM, FRESH, in our thoughts, FRESH in our attitudes, FRESH on our lips, and FRESH in our actions.

17 Say to Archippus, “Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it.”

Terry, give thorough thought to the responsibility I have revealed to you, by faith embrace this task, relying, on the fact, I will be involved with you as We work together.  


Colossians 4 12 -03-09 -2017 (NASB) QT

Sunday 12-03-2017 Colossians 4  1-4  QT

 1 Masters, grant to your slaves justice and fairness, knowing that you too have a Master in heaven.

Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak.

Terry, there is so many wonderful things around Me, for you to get excited over, but in the process you MAY miss the mark – ME.  So, talk to Me every day, each day, through out the day until that day is over; then start up again before you even get out of bed the next morning.  Our Life is what We are about, not the comfortableness of your flesh; which I have broken its bondage over you.  Its My Mystery, to be lived out between you and I.  It helps, you, when We talk to each other, throughout the day.

Monday 12-04-2017 Colossians 4  5-6  QT

Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.

Terry, remember you too, were once an outsider, it was not your intellect that opened your eyes, mental understanding or your heart acceptance of Me; it came by revelation; recognizing that I was speaking to you personally.  Share Me, with others, in light, of where they are, knowing that My Spirit must ignite their faith to open their mind and heart to Me.  This, is why, you are to present Me to their conscious mind; by word and deed.  This is the work, you and I are to do, TOGETHER.

Those who read,, please note they are my personal conversations with our Lord Jesus, they are not meant to become a devotional but rather to influence others to spend time with Jesus (THE LIVING WORD) in the Bible (THE WRITTEN WORD).  Thank you for reading, commenting and passing them along.  To those who are led to share I look forward to getting in on your conversations with Jesus.  terry, one of your brothers in Christ in His Church

WEEKLY REVIEW – Colossians 3 11-25 – 12-02 2017 (NASB) QT

Saturday 12-02-2017 Colossians 3  WEEKLY REVIEW  QT

Terry, conform to what I have said you are, not to what you know you were.  You now have My life and will experience My power, in light, of Our fellowship of suffering – I am not talking just the rejection of others, but rather saying “NO” to the flesh, world and Satan.  Remember, I took on flesh, like yours, yet did not sin; you now are made One with Me, you too can know My Power and the Fellowship of My Suffering.

Colossians 3 is completed

Thursday 11-30-2017 Colossians 3  18-21  QT

18 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them.20 Children, be obedient to your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing to the Lord. 21 Fathers, do not exasperate your children, so that they will not lose heart.

Terry, your wife is to voluntarily submit to you out of her relationship with Me; not forced by you.  Now for you, you are to love your wife as I have loved you.  Never, use intimidation or manipulation with her to get your way.

Remember your children need correction and guidance from loving parents, refrain from beating them into submission but discipline them as needed.  Do not be a father that lives by a double standard, be consistent even with yourself, be willing to apologize, ask for forgiveness, and enjoy the things your children enjoy.

Friday 12-01-2017 Colossians 3  18-21  QT

22 Slaves, in all things obey those who are your masters on earth, not with external service, as those who merely please men, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve. 25 For he who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and that without partiality.


Terry, serve those in authority over you but do not violate Our relationship in doing so.  Your service is not just for those who are in authority, it is to be done in a manner that is in harmony with with Our Intimacy with each other.  Remember, what is wrong is still wrong even if the one in charge demands that you do wrong and I do not show partiality; wrong will reap its consequences on everyone. 

The buck stops with Me, trust your life to Me.

COLOSSIANS 3 11- 28-29- 2017

Tuesday 11-28-2017 Colossians 3  12-13  QT

12 So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.

Terry, forgive not avoid.

Wednesday 11-29-2017 Colossians 3  14-17  QT

14 Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.


Unity is based on LOVE not agreement – can you LOVE and yet hold a different opinion?

Be thankful for My peace and be thankful, to Me, for being a member of “My Church”; along with others you may disagree with.

Listen to Me with Ears of Faith to give or receive:

         Teaching (even if you’re in disagreement)

         Admonishment (even if you’re misunderstood)

         Together with “My Church” express with music, a mutual admiration toward Father, Son and Spirit.

Stay in harmony with Our Personal intimacy, with Each Other, as you live in your community:

Give Verbal Expressions of love in your teaching, admonition, praise and thankfulness

Do Visible Actions of love, service, support, acceptance, and actions that communicate you value those I have chosen, for you and I to serve.

Colossians 3 – 11- 26-27- 2017

Sunday 11-26-2017 Colossians 3  1-4  QT

1 Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.

Terry, it is not when you make yourself holy, or when you change, you have already been made holy and have already been changed.  I Am, your Life.  Seek Me through all the enhancers I have provided for you.

Monday 11-27-2017 Colossians 3  5-11  QT

Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry. For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience, and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them. But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, 10 and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him— 11 a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.

Terry, you are “NEW” because you are now One with Me.  Do not let the flesh have free reign with your thoughts for your thoughts will always influence your attitude and actions.  Because your “NEW”, you have My Life and power to control the flesh and all it’s passions.  Remember to give into the flesh is idolatry.  Go back and read verses 1-4; so let Us have a great day.


Saturday 10-07-2017 Eph.5 WEEKLY REVIEW   QT

Terry, you don’t have to remind yourself of My presence when you live in a conscious awareness of My presence.  You never have to ask Me to be present for I Am always present; know that I am present.  If you start to doubt, then throw your doubt out by shifting your focus off your doubt to the awareness of MY Presence.


Thursday 10-05-2017 Eph.5:22-24   QT

22 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. 24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.


Terry, how do you view Me, in light, of your relationship with Carol?  Do I demand that you obey Me?  Do I withhold from you to manipulate or threaten with intimidation?  Am I dictatorial?

Maybe, you ought to reevaluate your relationship with Carol, in light, of your relationship with Me.  Bleed for her as I have bled for you; sacrifice for her as I have sacrificed for you; serve her as I serve you; provide for her as I have supplied for you. 

Encourage, inspire, and enjoy, life with her, as I do with you.


Monday 10-02-2017 Eph. 5: 3-5   QT

But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.


Terry, I have set My Church free from immorality, impurity, and greed, in fact We don’t even joke about such things.  My Church is constantly expressing thanks and appreciation to each other for being active members with Me, in My Church.  Yes, My Church is enjoying, together, their inheritance in the Kingdom belonging to the Father, Spirit, and I.


Tuesday 09-26-2017 Eph.4:9-10   QT

(Now this expression, “He ascended,” what does it mean except that He also had descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He who descended is Himself also He who ascended far above all the heavens, so that He might fill all things.)


Terry, beings I came from Our Father, I Am the One who returned to the Father.  I came from where time has no influence and have now returned to Our Father’s presence so that He would be to you all you need in every phase, situation and circumstance of your life as you live this present time.
