STEP 4 

DISCUSSION

Why do the NT authors see suffering as a normal part of life for Christ-followers? 

Paul knew that his imprisonment could not stop what God was doing. What does this tell us about the nature of God's work?

What "mystery" does Paul reveal to the Colossians? Why is this "mystery" important and what does it tell us about God?

Colossians 1:28 states, "He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ." Why is Christian maturity important to Paul? What are a few characteristics of maturity?

Paul desires for the Colossians (& all the churches) to know Christ in a greater way? What changes occur when we discover Jesus more?

STEP 5
MISSION & PRAYER

What stood out most to you in today's message? Pray that God will help you understand & apply what you've learned.

 

Read Colossians 1:24-2:5. Circle/highlight any words that describe Paul's "goals/hopes" for the Colossians. Consider how these "hopes" may lead you to growing in your faith.

 

Pray for the unity of God's people so that others will see Christ visibly in these difficult times.

Ask God to show you what's He's doing around you and pray for Him to use you.
