What a time we have had walking verse-by-verse through the book of Colossians. It has taught us the greatness and grandeur of Jesus over and above anyone or anything else. It is Jesus who makes suffering worth it. It is Jesus that brings together people from all different walks of life. It is Jesus who perfectly unites everything in the cosmos, including the church. For this reason, let’s build our lives on this Rock. Here are three takeaways from our time in Colossians.
1 / Jesus is Our Foundation
Build your life from Jesus. He’s our foundation and we must be daily reminded of who He is and what He has done! This happens through prayer and intimate, meditative, reflective reading. What is the foundation of your life outside of Christ? Family, ethnic background, comfort? How do you begin your day?
2 / Jesus is Our Fuel
Build your life through Jesus. Depend on Him regularly for everything. What gets you through the day? What is the fuel for your life? Podcasts, social media, friends?
3 / Jesus is Our Finish Line
Build your life to Jesus! Allow for Him to be the goal of your life. What is the best future for your life? Is it a future with Jesus, or something else? What does crossing the finish line look like? If Jesus is the finish line of our lives, His glory must be the end goal for us daily. How have you helped someone in their journey with Jesus this week? Maybe God is calling you to start a Bible study. Move out in the authority of Jesus. (Matthew 28:16-20)
As we continue to grow as a community, may we all be more and more committed to individually seeing Christ more central to our lives, and helping those around us as well. We look forward to the fruit of this study going forward.

GOD’S PLAN TO SAVE YOU
From the first chapters of Genesis through the closing scenes in Revelation, the Bible is the book of God’s salvation. From start to finish, its one unifying theme is that of grace and forgiveness for sinners through God’s redeeming work in Jesus Christ.
