Colossians, Week 5

 Week 4 Recap

Paul instructed the Christians at Colossae to let the peace of God rule their hearts. He told them to do all things, words and deeds, in the name of God. Paul also gave some instructions on family relations - they should treat each other with respect. Finally, he instructed them to work as if for God and not for people. He also warned them that they might not have earthly rewards but their rewards will be in heaven. 

The problem with letting the peace of God rule our hearts is our need to control. We want to tell God what to do and when to do it and then we'll be at peace.  But true peace comes with letting God be in control. If we want to be imitators of Jesus in our words and our deeds, we have to be seeking Him and letting Him change our heart. When our heart is changed, our relationships change, especially our family relationships. Love and respect rule the day.  Paul's instruction to do all things as if you are doing them for Jesus. This changes our perspective on everything. Everything becomes an offering to Jesus.
