I’m thrilled for our church to begin a new series this week called, “The Christ-Centered Life: A Study of Paul’s Letter to the Colossians.” Here’s what we wrote on the back of the study guide book that we’ve produced (which is available this Sunday for $5):
Jesus Christ is the most important person in history. He’s the hero of the True Story of the World, and he deserves complete devotion. Not only is life with Christ at the center appropriate, but it’s also better. It’s a fulfilling life that results in God’s glory and our joy. Paul’s letter to the Colossians is a theological celebration and practical description of the Christ-Centered Life. It’s filled with helpful, straightforward, and Christ-exalting truth that can transform us from the inside out.
With all our Community Groups going through this study together, I think it will be a great season of spiritual growth for our church and for me. If you’re part of Second Mile, I hope you’ll bring a friend to discover the beauty and greatness of Jesus.
