Colossians, Week 4

 Week 3 Recap

Paul continued to warn against false teachers, reminding the church at Colossae to stay connected to "the head" - God. The false teachings included angel worship, added feasts and customs and aestheticism (physically harsh, no indulgence). Paul reminded them to keep our thoughts on things above.  He listed things they should put away, things to stay away from. Finally, Paul told them not to lie to one another and that Christ is all in all, He brings us together. 

Remember, keeping our mind on things about means remembering that the person in front of me is a child of God. Remember that we are reflecting Jesus to the world. We're not perfect. We're pursuing the things of God and He changes our hearts so that the things of the world -  sexual immorality, impurity, shameful passion, even desire, greed, anger, rage, malice, slander and abusive language - gets smaller and the fruits of the spirit - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control- get larger. 

We need to remember that when we reflect Jesus to the world, we should look different from the world. We should be kind and speak the truth in love.

Have a great week!
