Complete in Christ – Part 2

In this next installment of our “Complete in Christ” series, we explore redemption, reconciliation, and our full assurance in Christ.

We uncover the mystery Paul refers to and address false teaching and universalism. We also reflect on the practical implications of being complete in Christ and what it means to labor and strive according to God’s power at work within us.


Discussion Questions for Colossians 1:21-2:6:

  1. Read verse 22 and react to this statement: I am reconciled to God and holy and blameless forever.
  2. Read verse 23. How does this passage respond to those who twist the meaning of this passage to promote a universal salvation? (Hint: Notice the “if” and the condition that follows.)
  3. Read verses 26-27 and Colossians 2:2. What is the mystery Paul is referring to? What does this mystery mean to you personally?
  4. Read verse 28. What does it mean for us to be complete in Christ? What practical implications does this have in your life? How does this help you avoid distractions?
  5. Read verse 29 and react to this statement: It’s not legalism to labor and strive according to God’s power at work within me.
  6. Read Colossians 2:2. In your own words, explain what is “the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding.”
  7. Read Colossians 2:6. What attitude or approach did we have at salvation? How can we walk in that same approach today (after we’re saved)?
