The book of Colossians focuses on the person and the work of JESUS CHRIST. It was yet another letter that Paul wrote from prison.
CHRIST - the visible image of the invisible God.
Don't let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high sounding nonsense that comes from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world rather than from CHRIST.
CHRIST performs a spiritual "circumcision" on us when we accept Him....by cutting away our sinful nature. We are buried with Him when we are baptized...being raised to a new life.
As members of the body of CHRIST, we are called to live in peace....and to always be thankful.
Colossians 3:16c....sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to GOD with thankful hearts.
Colossians 3:18 thru 4:1
These verses are known as a "household code". They are instructions that are given to wives, husbands, children, fathers, slaves, and masters.
Wives - submit to husbands
Husbands - love your wife and never treat her harshly
Children - always obey your parents, for this pleases the LORD
Fathers - don't aggravate your children
Slaves - obey your earthly masters
Masters - be just and fair to your slaves....remember that you also have a MASTER in heaven
Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.
I promise it wasn't intentional....but I'm loving every verse that I'm ending with so far!!!
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
