For millennia there has been a constant in the world. It’s the same yesterday, today and will be honestly forever. The problem however is that we tend to not live like we already know the answer. We try to add a little here or change a little there. We make a tweak or a twist and try to put our own little spin on things. But the reality of the matter is in our lives there really and truly is one answer to the struggles, pains, loneliness and other issues we face. There’s only one real place to go where we can find meaning and peace and comfort and connection beyond our ability to grasp.
This week we dove into Colossians 2:1-15. This is a powerful section of Paul’s letter that moves beyond what’s wrong in the church of Colossae to what, or in this case who is the fix. We cover topics like baptism and its Old Testament partner circumcision. We’ll look quickly at what it means to be found in Christ and what it means to grow in him.
The thrust of the whole message is Jesus. It’s that simple. We’ve gotten away from the focus of God’s grace in Christ. So this book takes us back to the source of all we have. It’s the source of our peace and joy and faith and belonging. Paul tells it very plainly. Then we spend a few minutes unpacking what Paul is teaching. Go ahead and take a look at Colossians 2:1-15 now. Then click the link below to hear the message.
