What did you get out of our study of Colossians chapter 1? I hope you got a clearer picture of our great redeeming God. I hope you were encouraged by the reminder that “Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God . . . He is before all things . . . the head . . . the beginning . . . in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell.”
I hope, like Julie shared, you experienced peace while you read this chapter. I hope that, like Margie, you were reminded of the preeminence of Christ, and that you were encouraged, like Pauline said, to “persevere in my walk with the Lord.”
I keep meditating on the phrase “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” What a precious gift we have in our relationship with Christ—the “hope of glory.” He is our only reason for hope. Our only context for hope comes from the fact that He is our redeemer and He is preeminent over all things visible and invisible.
Security and peace are ours because of His position and power!
How grateful I am that God has “delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son!”
Did you have any specific questions about the chapter that I might be able to help you with?
Were there any verses that you had to grapple with or struggled to understand?
Tomorrow, I’ll have some questions for you from Colossians chapter 2, but in preparation for that, I hope you’ll spend some time reading and soaking in that chapter today. Think about how it relates to what you’ve learned in chapter 1 and ask God to teach you what He desires for you to learn in this chapter!
I look forward to reading your comments ~
