Colossians was written for people like us, but during the first remarkable years in the early church. The same Holy Spirit who inspired Paul to write these letters can teach us what they mean and how to apply them to our lives. Paul always wrote with special care to celebrate the absolute supremacy of Jesus Christ, and richly so in Colossians. It is amazing to see Paul’s love and insight as he writes to a church he had never been to! In Colossians, he also corrects some soul-destroying errors in theology and teaches us how to live for Christ in our daily relationships. In Philemon, Paul addresses a delicate interpersonal conflict within the church and helps us to see how to honor God in restoring a relationship.
A study guide, Continue to Live in Him, will be used in addition to class lectures and will be a helpful guide for daily reading, meditation, and memorization of Scripture. The author of the study guide, Kathleen Nielson, testifies to how serious study of the Word of God has kept her focused, growing, and alive in the deepest ways. The process of studying the Word…seeing the shape of a book from the Bible and the passages in it…guided by the Spirit of God should truly feed our souls, and transform our lives!
This is a ten-week study with five lessons in the fall and five in winter-spring.
