Colossians 1:3-5 — The Apostle Paul gave thanks for the Colossians’ faith in Jesus and their love for all God’s people. That which animated their faith and love was the hope that was theirs in the Gospel. Every Christian enjoys this glorious hope!
Colossians 1:1-2 — In this study we learn about Timothy and the Colossian Christians. Paul refers to them as “saints & faithful” brethren. Is this how he would address us if he was writing to our local church?
This is our first lesson in a new series. It gives the background to Paul’s letter and discusses the reasons he wrote it – reasons that are highly relevant to our Christian life today.
