Colossal Lessons from Colossians

Learning is a lifelong art, practiced by the wise in order to succeed in life.  It is why we insist that children are educated, and why even when the school bells rings no more for us, we still are called by God to learn.  In the church, we use Scripture as our textbook, and from it we learn lessons, that, if we take to heart, can sustain us through all of life’s issues and problems.  In the month of August, we are going to be learning some “Colossal Lessons from Colossians.”  In the church at Colossae, false teachers were trying to chip away at the deity and authority of Christ, convincing the church that Christ wasn’t sufficient to conquer the evil corruption of the world. So while Paul was under house arrest awaiting trial in Rome, he wrote the book of Colossians, giving us the single most concentrated teaching on the theology of “Christ.”  The lessons we find in the letter are profound! Jesus is the answer for everything. He is supreme. He is sufficient. He is the one who has saved us from sin and changed us into new, living creatures. We have a new life because of Him. Paul wrote this letter to make sure the church had a clear view of who Jesus is because that would lead to an overflow of heartfelt obedience to Christ, which would influence their region and ultimately the world for His glory! And it is for this reason we study this letter together in August, going “back to school” to learn the most important lessons of faith.  Join us in August for “Colossal Lessons from Colossians,” and bring a friend.
