STEP 4 

DISCUSSION

Colossians 2:8 says, "Don't let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that comes from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world..." What are some things that "capture" Christians in our present day?

A recent study* determined that nearly 70% of born-again Christians disagree with the biblical position that Jesus is the only way to God. Is this surprising to you? Why or why not?

Why do you think Paul used the terms "circumcision" and "baptism" to describe Christ's work and the believer's relationship to Christ?

What does it mean that God disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross? (Col 2:15)

STEP 5
MISSION & PRAYER

Take a moment to reflect on today's message or discussion questions. What stands out to you most? Write it down and ask God what He's wanting to show you this week.

Read Col 2:8-23 and underline areas that demonstrate God's wisdom and power. What has He done?

Many are feeling weary as lockdown continues. How are you taking care of yourself? 

Write down the names of 2-3 people you can pray for and commit to praying for them daily this week.
