Colossians 3:1-11 - Why Does My Thought Life Matter?




Does God care about our thought life? It is easy to think we can separate the actions of our life from the thoughts of our mind. In reality, our fantasies are only one step removed from our realities. In this study, we learn all Christian living begins on the battlefield of the mind with Christian thinking.

Colossians 2:16-23 - Where You Beat Up By A Church Bully?




In spite of school initiatives, bullying is common. Approximately 160,000 kids stay home from school each day to avoid being bullied. Between sixth to twelfth grade, approximately 1 in 4 students experience bullying. Bullying is not limited to the adolescent and teenage years in school. Bullying also takes place in the church.

Colossians 2:6-15 - Why Is Jesus All I Need?




Where do you find your sense of self-worth? For most of us, it is in our work. For stay-at-home mom's, their identity is usually found in being a mother. If you are in high school, your identity is often found in your sport or the instrument you plan in the band. The problem is, when what we do is taken away from us, it crushes our understanding of who we are. In Colossians, Paul shows us how our identity doesn't come from what we do but what God has done for us through Jesus. This is the key to overcoming our depression and sagging self-worth.

Colossians 1:24-2:5 - What Is The Most Powerful Force In The World?




Many have tried to push the gospel out of existence. In 1949, when the communists took over China, there were 1 million Christians. In spite being forced to operate in secret, the church in China has grown to 60 million Christians. The good news of Jesus continues to make progress against powerful opposition. As we continue our study in Colossians, Paul tells us God's plan to spread the good news of Jesus around the world.

Colossians 1:15-23 - Who Is Jesus?




Jesus asked his disciples the most important question in the history of the world. Who do you say I am? Today, there is no shortage of answers. Jehovah's Witnesses claim Jesus is the archangel Michael and the first created being. Mormons say he is the half-brother of Lucifer and we can become like him. Islam claims his is a good prophet, but inferior to Mohammed. Hindus claim he is a holy man. In this study we learn what the Bible says is the true identity of Jesus and why understanding his true identity changes your life.
