From a damp Roman prison cell The Spirit of the Living God impressed upon the Apostle Paul to pen a short…but power packed letter to the believers in the city of Colosse. As with all of the Apostles letters, there is a general theme…a big idea, if you will…that this letter highlights. In Romans, we are justified in Christ, in Pauls 1st letter to the Corinthians we are enriched in Christ and the 2nd teached that we’re comforted in Christ. To the Galatian Church Paul wrote that we were free in Christ and to the Ephesians we are quickened in Christ. Paul wrote to the Phillipians and said that we were happy in Christ and to the Church of Colosse, Paul wrote that those who belong to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords are COMPLETE in Christ.
What a message for this Gentile Church! What a message for us today!
