The resource for true fulfillment

Colossians 2:2 that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself,

In recent days I have found much blessing in reading and studying Paul's letter to the Colossians.  In this short little book of the New Testament we find the theme of: "True Fulfillment".  Today I want to set before you dear reader an outline of this book that underscores how we find fulfillment in Jesus Christ:

We find true fulfillment in Jesus Christ in the following ways in Colossians:

Spiritual Maturity 1:1-12

Supreme Revelation of Christ 1:13-20

Service to God 1:21-29

Assurance of Christian Identity 2:1-23

Solid Godly Living 3:1-25

Certainty of God's Will 4:1-18

By noting key verses in each chapter of this wonderful book, we can explore the main points of Paul's argument for the true fulfillment we find in Jesus Christ.  Some of the verses below were quoted or commented upon in yesterday's blog - however they are worth looking at again.  I would encourage the reader to look at these verse references and ask the Lord to show them the significance of Christ's fulness.

Colossians 1:9, 13-20; Colossians 2:9,10; Colossians 3:16
Colossians 4:12,17
