Many letters start with pleasantries and hellos, but not much substance. That’s not the case with Paul’s letter to the Colossians. In the opening sentence, which is in verses 1 and 2, Paul talks about Christian identity, his apostleship, and Timothy, his companion in ministry. But wait there’s more, which sounds like a late night commercial. He makes sure these non-Jewish believers understand they are included in God’s family. He also encourages them in their faithfulness and reminds them that grace and peace come from God the Father. Although these words were written to the Colossians, they could also be written to all of us. What Paul shares is truth that is available to everyone because God made it freely available through Jesus. Join Ken and Mike as they discuss how we can find ourselves in this jam-packed sentence.
