Some Challenges from Colossians! (Part 3)

18 Jan

We’re doing a quick chapter survey of the epistle to the Colossians. We’ve looked briefly at chapters one and two.

This morning let’s take a couple of notes on chapter three.

Twice we are told to “set [our] minds” in chapter three (vv. 1-2). We are then commanded to execute, put to death, the sins which belong to our earthly nature (v. 5). We are to “rid” ourselves of such things as anger, rage, malice, etc. (vv. 8ff).

We are then told to clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, etc., and to bear with and forgive one another (vv. 12-14).

We are to let Christ’s peace rule in our hearts, to be thankful, to admonish one another, and to do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus (vv. 15-17).

Specific instructions are given to wives, husbands, children, fathers, and slaves (vv. 18-25).

Wow! God’s Word is as specific as what I think, how I treat others, how I look at everything I do!

Anything here you need to work on?

    “We are then told to clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, etc., and to bear with and forgive one another” Beautiful calling so like Christ gentle and humble.
