Captivated by Christ

A Study in the Book of Colossians




There is no perfect Christian, and we all have potluck theology on some level that needs constant weeding, but we are still the church by God’s grace and there is always hope as we look to Christ.  Paul knew the remedy and aimed his words in full focus on Christ alone.  We would do well to do the same.  Let’s be a church that is captivated by Christ as we worship him.

Captivated by Christ in Gospel Hope

Colossians 1:1-8

At the very start of his letter, the apostle Paul thanked God for the evidence of gospel growth in the Colossian church. They had heard, understood, and believed the gospel under the ministry of Epaphras. Faith and love emerged in their lives because of their hope in Christ. It is always necessary that God’s people lean into their eternal hope in Jesus Christ alone.
