Colossians 1:1-14

  • List and discuss the different ways our society views Jesus. What is good? What is bad?
  • How are some of these different than what the Bible teaches?
  • What effects could these false concepts of Jesus have on a Christians life? Why?
  • What does Paul say they are completely filled with in verse 9? What does this knowledge enable us to accomplish?
  • Verse 10 says we can live in a way that is “fully pleasing to Him.” What does that mean? What would a life look like that is fully pleasing to God?
  • What does it mean to be “strengthened in all power?” What does someone look like who lives this way?
  • Verses 13-14 explain what Jesus did for us. What has He delivered us from? What does it mean to be transferred into His Kingdom?

  • What do their lives look like?
  • How can your life look like what Paul describes in this passage? (Filled with knowledge, strengthened will all power, delivered, etc.)
