Digging for truth

The construction of a marina at Caesar’s Creek awaits the results of an investigation made by local archaeologists. Since the construction would take place on federal lands, an archaeological survey must first be conducted in order to determine if the land holds historical treasures. So, the lake has been lowered at the site of the new marina’s construction and archaeologists are digging for information. When the archaeologists are finished digging, provided they have not found anything, the marina will be built and is expected to be open by the 2016 boating season. For more information about the new marina at Caesar’s Creek, see for their article.

Paul warned the Colossian Christians “Be careful that you don’t let anyone rob you through his philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the elements of the world, and not after Christ” (Colossians 2:8). Knowing the difficulty of the Christian life, Paul placed a premium on knowing the Gospel and being able to stay away from false doctrines. In fact, he wrote, “For the time will come when they will not listen to the sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves teachers after their own lusts,” to Timothy (2 Timothy 4:3).

Paul’s goal and God’s desire for Christian of Paul’s time was “As therefore you received Christ Jesus, the Lord, walk in him, rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, even as you were taught, abounding in it in thanksgiving” (Colossians 2:6-7). However, this only happens as the people of God invest in studying his Scriptures. Cincinnati Christians need to be “digging-in” to the Word of God for understanding, connection with God, and spiritual maturity. As archaeologists look for treasures at Caesar’s Creek, Cincinnati Christians need to investigate their Bibles for God’s living truth. Colossians 3:16 states, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your heart to the Lord.”
