As we come into the second half of Colossians chapter 3, we stumble into perhaps the most controversial verses in the entire letter. Paul starts by telling wives to submit to their husbands. But what did he actually mean by this? Is he talking about blind obedience or is there something bigger in his mind […]
What are you going to wear today? It’s a question we all have to ask ourselves pretty much every morning; but did you ever ask yourself the question from a spiritual perspective? We all “get dressed” spiritually each day and Paul gives us counsel on “what to wear” today in Colossians chapter 3.
When we met Jesus and decide to live our lives in Him, it can be a tricky business in some ways. While we hear again and again in scripture that we are new in Christ, we also live out the reality of still living day to day with temptations and struggles. How do we balance […]
We don’t often think of a world without bacon… it’s just something we take for granted. However, before Peter’s vision in Acts 10, no God-honoring person would have ever considered enjoying the sweet, salty treat. Pork fell onto the “unclean” list from the Old Testament Law.

As we jump into the 2nd week of our study through the Book of Colossians, we find ourselves asking “what will Paul’s first move be?” Last week we looked at all of the players involved in this first century letter, this week, we’ll explore Paul’s opening thought…do you know you’ve been rescued in Christ?
Join us as we dive into our summer-long study of the Book of Colossians. As Paul writes to this young church in the first century, his resounding theme is we are IN CHRIST. But before we can dig too deep into this letter, we need to start by looking a little more closely at a […]
