We are always new Christians and a new congregation. Our new life in Christ is based on our union with him. We are united with Christ in his death, his resurrection, his current life with the Father, and his future return in glory. Text: Colossians 3:1-4
The established church Christ wants is one where people have received him in truth and by faith, and are walking in that truth firm in faith. We are praying for the work of God in Grace Community Church to establish us firm in the faith. Text: Colossians 2:6-7
This week Justin and Scott sit down with Janine Mann, a member of Grace, to discuss Bible reading and the sermon on Sunday. How can we discern between “plausible arguments” that distract us from the gospel and tools the Lord can use to help fight sin?
Scott and Justin examine Colossians 1:27-29, and discuss and clarify what it means to present people “mature in Christ” in the context of a local congregation. Other questions discussed include how we proclaim him in our culture today, and what does it mean to “struggle with all his energy that he powerfully works within us?”
