Colossians 1:26-28 "that is, the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints, 27 to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ."
In our periodic study of Colossians we have considered how we are to grow up into spiritual maturity in Colossians 1:1-12 and how Jesus Christ is our wonderful fulfillment in Colossians 1:13-20. To remind the reader once again of the key theme of Colossians - "Jesus is enough", we now come to not only the final portion of chapter one but also the key verse to the whole book: Colossians 1:26-28. As quoted above, Paul's concern is to demonstrate to these Colossians and us why Jesus is enough, and why all other substitutes and man-made ideas are inadequate and condemning. To drive home these points, Paul is going to show his readers that because they have a share in the ministry given by the Lord Jesus Christ to His church, finding their fulfillment in Jesus Christ is ever more vital.
