A study through the book of Colossians.
We live in a culture of mixed messages. Whether religious, social, political, or cultural, every message promises a path toward a fulfilling life, a way to satisfy needs and desires, to produce happiness. The Colossian church faced a similar situation in the first years of Christianity. Colossae was a city frequented by philosophers, merchants, rabbis, and mystics. So, the Christians living in the city were also swimming in a sea of mixed messages promising to lead to ‘the good life.’ Colossians shows us that amid the world’s mixed messages, the best defense is a good offense. Amid a flurry of messages, Colossians calls us to center ourselves on Jesus: he is our preeminent king, he is the only one who can give us a full and satisfying life—because the fullness of God’s life dwells richly in him. Join us as we quiet the static noise of the world’s messages and tune into what Colossians has to say about how we can be fulfilled in Christ.
