What Does A Christ Follower Look Like?

Hey Everyone!  We’re back…and we had a great time in the UK.  I actually drove a little over there…yeesh.  It wasn’t so bad until you got to roads which were designed for almost one car, and two cars had to pass on it.  All in all though, it was a refreshing getaway for Robbie and I…and we really appreciate your prayers. 

I heard that the teachings these last two Sundays were good…but that’s all over now, because I’m back.

This Sunday we’re going to start a new series on the book of Colossians.  It comes next in line as we journey through the didactic epistles (teaching letters).  We’ll sort of introduce the book (background, purpose, author, etc…) and then read vs 1-8 of chapter one.  You can read the Message version here, which I recomend, because the run-on sentence in vs 3-8 is a little tough to navigate as is.

What words seem inportant to you as you read these verses?  What does it seem Paul is thankful about when he thinks of these Colossian Christians?  How does that apply to our lives…how does it apply to our understanding of how we should be living as followers of Christ?

Anyway…its good to be back.  We’ll see you all on Sunday!
