The Household of Christ, Part 2
Colossians 3:18-21 A wise man once said, “Sometimes, love means giving up the right to be right.” Many a spouse has found this to be true in their marriage, but it certainly is true in our relationship with God. Understanding His Word requires that we be willing to rethink what we think it says — to give up the right to be right — and this is perhaps nowhere more true than when it comes to what His Word says concerning wives and to husbands. Come join us on Sunday as we explore what Paul had to say to married couples and how we might apply it today.
The Household of Christ, Part 1
Colossians 3:18-21 In an age when religious leaders only had time for the grown-ups, Christ instructed His disciples: “Let the little children come to Me!” And with that simple command, He taught us what it means to raise our children — and how we grown-ups ought to come to Him as well. The Apostle Paul relayed this teaching to the believers in Colossae; come join us this Sunday as we take a look at what he had to say to the children of God, whatever their age!
The Word of Christ
Colossians 3:15-16 In the classic musical The Sound of Music, newly-installed governess Maria — loosely based on the historical Maria Von Trapp — discovers that her task of teaching those in her care is better accomplished with a little music. Nineteen centuries prior, the Apostle Paul came to the same conclusion, even elevating singing to the level of teaching and admonishing as a means of filling our hearts with the Word of Christ! Join us this Sunday as we take a closer look at this wonderful tool God has given us to hold onto the truth of Christ that sets us free.
The Peace of Christ
Colossians 3:15 In John 17:21, Christ prayed to His Father that His disciples — across the world and throughout time — “may all be one […] that the world may believe that you have sent me.” Christ prayed for unity to be a defining characteristic of the Church, and His Holy Spirit empowers it — but how? Come join us this Sunday as we continue our study of Colossians and practice the unity we have as the Body of Christ during a time of Body Life.
