Continuing in Christ

Bible Passage: Colossians 2:1-7

Paul has taken the first chapter of Colossians to give a warm greeting, let the church know he is praying for them and interceding for them to God and then to strongly present the case for the preeminence of Christ. Truly, Jesus is the supreme Savior.
All of this was done with purpose. Paul brought out the ministry of the mystery of Christ and the church. Remember, the mystery is Christ in us. This is a powerful truth to help us be firmly planted, firmly rooted in Christ. Paul wanted to establish a solid foundation upon which to build.
