Colossians 1:9-23

“God Reconciled with All Things”

Colossians makes some grand claims about God and Christ.  Can we believe them?  What will our lives look like of we do?  Christ is the image of the invisible God.  In him God created all things.  He is the head of the church.  Through Christ God reconciled all things to Godself.  We are called to believe, to trust, that we – and everyone else – have been reconciled to God through Christ, and that this calls us to steadfastness and ongoing hope.  What will it mean for us to be servants of this gospel?
