Jesus First (1/13/19)
Read Colossians and you’ll see it’s about who Jesus is and why he’s worthy of our life and worship. Paul’s letter is “Christology” at its clearest and best. Colossians is all about Jesus, who he was and is and what we should do about him – that we should acknowledge him as Lord of our lives and “continue to follow him,” becoming more like him over time (2:6 – 7). That’s the “mystery” Paul writes about … Jesus living in us, Jesus transforming us. We’re going to talk about that over the coming six months – believing in Jesus and becoming more like Jesus. The goal is more people who are more like Jesus, which is always a good thing!
