Colossians 1:24-2:5 This is all about ‘proclaiming the gospel’. In v23 and again in v25 we learn it was because of Christ Jesus and his gospel that Paul does what he does. There is power in the gospel, and the mystery is revealed that the gospel is available to all! God is the one who reveals mysteries and truth, and God has revealed his plan for salvation to the Gentiles – through Jesus, we can be his children. And this message is spread when those who hear the gospel, tell others the gospel.
When we consider our own lives, whether we’re working, studying, staying at home, retired, unemployed, we are servants of Jesus Christ – are we proclaiming the gospel?
Colossians 1:15-23 After you’ve been a Christian a while, one temptation is that we get so familiar with the bible’s teaching about Christ that we just miss how utterly unique and supreme he is and begin to wander away from Jesus to other, more ‘exciting’ things – here is Paul’s remedy – blowing our minds with the wonder of who Christ is.
Colossians 1:1-14 Sometime we’re left wondering if we’re getting life right. Shouldn’t it hurt less, feel better and not be filled with the same old mistakes? Listen in as Paul tells the Colossians Jesus’s answers.
