In Him: Colossians
Have you ever felt like there was more to a relationship with Jesus than what you are experiencing?
This Summer we will be spending time in the Book of Colossians. This letter is one of the most important letters that Paul wrote. In these 4 short chapters, Paul lays out His master work. His life’s work simplified and refined to a point of beauty. At the end of Paul’s days it had all become clear: Christ was the only Hope for the world, and He was winning.
This letter serves as a field guide for members of God’s New Creation in the city of Colossae. As newly minted exiles and sojourners in a land they once called home, Paul writes this letter to encourage people, that once lived lives far from God, to “deeply root” themselves in the only thing that matters. Paul reminds then in a very troubling time to continue to find their Identity, Security, and Hope in the Author, Head, and Purpose of New Creation.
