Paul's letter to the Colossians is all about how Christ sits at the center of all things. As Paul seeks to address some (unspecified) false teachings, he lays out an argument about how Jesus is in order to make the case for how we should live. This message, to a community that Paul never met, rings true for us today with as much relevance as ever! We too need to be centered on Christ, as individuals and as a community, in order to push back against those who, whether from inside the church or outside, would seek to co-opt the Christian label for their own purposes.
This week's sermon...from Colossians 1:1-14.
