Reading along with us in Colossians? Here’s today’s reading:

Colossians 2 (ESV)

For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ.....Continue Reading

  2. Paul is certainly calling the Colossians and us to a higher and better way of living. He begins the chapter expressing his care for the church there and how in his absence he hopes they are still living in the principles that he has laid down for them: a life focused on Christ and the resources He provides as well as being the kind of people God wants them to be. Yes the focus is Jesus in whom wisdom, power and connection to God is found. He is God and has provided forgiveness, a new nature, and victory over the forces of evil. So live in the circumcision and sanctification that He enables and directs us to and don’t listen to those who are trying to deceive you to follow the written code that is about human effort and external regulation and what I do to make myself right with God. It all sounds and looks good, but there is no real power there. It is not able to restrain the sin nature in its sensual indulgence. Only the power of God can do that, made available through Christ and what He did to crucify he flesh and give us knowledge and power for living.
