“Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” Hebrews 10:24
This week we started our new season of Positive Woman Connection. I love PWC, because it is a place for us to join together as women not only to encourage one another, but also to study God’s word together. This year we are studying the book of Colossians, and what a powerful book it is! If I were to describe the book of Colossians using three words, I would say it is about Christ, Confidence and Community. We learned this past week about the importance of knowing what we believe and the basis for our worldview. My personal worldview is based on the foundation of the Bible. What about you? I believe the Bible is the inerrant word of God and that it gives us the basis of understanding who God is and what our purpose is in this world. Most importantly, the Bible reveals who Christ is and why God sent Him.
Colossians teaches us specific truths about Christ. In fact, theologians agree that it is one of the foremost books on Christology. Here’s a how Paul described the majesty of Christ in Colossians, “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.”
What a wonderful God we serve! He has rescued us and given us a new life because of what Christ did for us on the cross. I want to encourage you to study Colossians for yourself, and if you live in the Dallas area, join us for one of the Positive Woman Connection Bible studies – or start your own in your city. We meet at Prestonwood Country Club in north Dallas on the 4th Tuesday of the month and in Allen at Cottonwood Creek Church on the 4th Wednesday of the month.
