A Series in Colossians
6So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
As the saying goes, ‘dress for the job you want, not for the job you have.’
How often do you try to do everything in your own strength and fall flat on your face? The good news from Colossians is, we can step into a new set of clothes.
'The world says we can have everything now; but is it truly everything?'
In a world that promises instant gratification, can we have everything we want now? Paul encourages the Colossians to put down roots. When we give Jesus everything, he doesn’t give us back religion, tradition, or teaching. When we give ourselves to Jesus, we receive Jesus Christ himself. He is everything now.
In the book of Colossians, Paul addresses problems the Church faces and encourages believers to remain devoted to the exalted Jesus. In Jesus, the hope of heaven has already broken into earth. It’s all about Jesus - it always has been, is now and always will be.
‘Live a life that brings pleasure to God. That’s how we can truly thrive.’
How does knowing God more, and staying connected to Jesus, allows us to live a life where we can thrive and impact those around us?
