Fruitful Suffering, Sharing the Secret

Colossians: Fruitful Suffering, Sharing the Secret

Paul rejoices in his suffering, recognizing the strengthening of the church in his absence. We, too, can learn to embrace the suffering God allows in our lives in order to accomplish His sovereign plans.

Awakening Imagination

Jacob Gaines

Colossians: Awakening Imagination

Paul uses poetry to awaken the imaginations of a young church while offering another way of looking at how the world is ordered and who holds it all together. It’s as provocative a poem today as it was 2,000 years ago.

Bearing Fruit

Jacob Gaines

Colossians: Bearing Fruit

Where does the fruitful and prosperous life come from? Paul addresses this question and others as he challenges 1st century Christians to bear the fruit of the gospel in a culture where the source of fruitfulness is up for debate. Has anything changed in 2,000 years?

Grace and Peace

Jacob Gaines

Colossians: Grace and Peace

Paul begins his letter to the Christians in Colossae with one of his typical greetings, which is anything buy typical if you lived in the Roman Empire. Paul begins with grace and peace.
