Complete in Christ – Part 3

Colossians 2 is one of my favorite chapters in the whole Bible. Paul writes with electrifying passion and conviction about powerful truths, including the dangers of following religious traditions and the futility of trying to improve or eliminate the “you” whom God has raised up.

We also see the entire Gospel message encapsulated in two verses, and we discover the inherent problem with rule-keeping and what it means to “let Christ rule” instead.

Engage with this next message in our Colossians series and celebrate your completeness in Christ!

Discussion Questions for Colossians 2:8-23:
