People's Bible Notes for Colossians 1:28


Col 1:28 Whom we preach. Christ. Every man. Note that this is repeated three times in the verse. The apostle impresses the fact that the gospel is not for a favored few, but for every one. In all wisdom. In every form of wisdom. Perfect in Christ Jesus. We should all aim at perfection; the apostle aims to bring all to this ideal. The high ideal is before, for which we all should aim. However, he whose sins are all blotted out will be counted perfect in the great day.
