I'm still trying to catch up on my journey posts. Here are some takeaways from my recent read through Colossians.

  • Colossians makes it convincingly clear that Jesus is in a completely different camp from Moses, Socrates, Buddha, Mohammed, etc.
  • Every believer, just like Paul, is on a special assignment from God.
  • Our churches are filled with people, just like Epaphras, not welll-known, but reliable servants of Christ.
  • Great question to ponder: Is God proud of me for my work for the kingdom?
  • Do you have any doubts that Jesus is God? Meditate on 1:15-20.
  • Jesus actually died for me.
  • A great way to measure the value of any sermon: does it preach Christ?
  • I wonder how many accept Jesus as Savior and then don't live for Him?
  • Eugene Peterson strikes agains in 2:7--"School's out; quit studying the subject and start living it."
  • Praise God that my sins are forgiven, the slate wiped clean--all because of the cross.
  • We need to wear the wardrobe God has picked out: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline.
  • Chapin Baptist is my employer; but the ultimate Master I serve is Jesus Christ.
  • How do I want people to pray for me? That God will open many doors for proclaiming Christ to lost people.
