The book of Colossians is essentially about taking off the old and putting on the new. This can sometimes feel like more of a “religious duty” than spiritual devotion to Jesus himself. That’s the temptation the Colossian church was facing from false teachers. But Paul provides a very different lens to look through in his New Testament letter.
The Colossian Christians’ new identity in Christ required a new way of living that would affect their character and thinking. As a result, this letter provides one of the most compelling images in all the New Testament of what our relationship with Jesus should look like. This series is designed to answer the question, “How do we live this new life Jesus gives us?” Ultimately, since we have been made alive with Christ – we are free to live like Christ.
