The first half of Colossians presents the Person, character, and supremacy of Christ, and the second half turns to the believer’s pursuit of Christ through submission to Him and godly conduct in each area of life. Because of our union with Christ (3:1-4), we are to put the sinful manifestations of the old self to death (3:5-11) and demonstrate the life of the new self in Christ (3:12-17). This inward transformation should be expressed in the transformation of outward relationships in the family, in the marketplace, and in proclamation to unbelievers (3:18-4:6).
Paul urged his readers to keep their hope fixed on Christ alone. As they grow in this hope, it will be manifested in a quality of holiness in their relationships with others that is not based on rules and regulations, but on a growing personal relationship with Christ Jesus.
READING of COLOSSIANS 3
Lord, when Christ, who is my life, is revealed, then I also will be revealed with Him in glory. Whatever I do in word or deed, may I do in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to You.
