COLOSSIANS 1-2
DAY 190: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Today our journey through the Bible enters the book of Colossians, written by the Apostle Paul.

Ask God for His understanding of Colossians 1-2. Read Colossians 1-2. Let’s journey!

The letter to Colossians was written by the Apostle Paul during one of his many imprisonments for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Paul did not start the church at Colossians and he had never visited the church. The man who did start the church had recently visited Paul in prison and mentioned some of the issues facing the church at Colossae. Paul wrote this letter to the church to address some of the pressures the church was facing, with a focus on the how the love of Jesus should rule over every part of our life.

Colossians 1-2: The people of the church at Colossae are genuinely seeking a godly life. Unfortunately, Jewish tradition conflicted with the Christian faith, ultimately making salvation the product of works, and not faith in Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul cautioned the church at Colossae to follow the Gospel, forsaking meaningless customs and traditions. (Colossians 1:1-2:23)

After concluding today’s reading, consider the following: What is Paul’s message in today’s reading? How can that message be applied to you in your life?
