Complete in Christ : Part 1
In John 14, Jesus stated these familiar words; “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” That simple statement has frustrated many people. It’s hard for proud people to accept the Gospel because it is so simple. It’s hard for them to accept that their knowledge, their efforts, or whatever, are of no help in acquiring salvation.
As we continue our study in Colossians, we’re brought face-to-face once again with the preeminence of Christ. The Gnostics at Colossae promoted the idea that you had to embrace their philosophy in order to be a genuine Believer. And the Judaizers said you had to keep certain parts of the Law in order to be accepted by God. In our text, Paul takes on both groups and refutes their errors, clearly teaching that we are “Complete in Christ.” We invite you to join Pastor J. Mark for this encouraging study.
