In his letter to the church in Colossae, Paul is writing to a church that is worthy of much praise. In the opening verses of his letter, he praises God for their faith and love toward the saints. He then offers prayers for them that they would continue to grow and to be strengthened.
But he also writes to a church which has been infected with various false teachings including Gnosticism and legalism. And as he moves on from his prayer for this church, he presents what is ultimately the solution to these issues confronting this church; the person and work of the Lord Jesus.
In our passage today, we encounter some of the highest Christological praise in all of Scripture as Paul presents the work and the person of Jesus Christ to this church.
As we examine our passage this morning, we will draw out three aspects of our Redeemer:
Thank you for listening to today's teaching. We pray that as we focus on the person and work of Jesus Christ, like Paul, you will be drawn with us to offer up praise and adoration for the beauty of who Jesus is, and for His wonderful work of redemption.
