Colossians Chapter 3 Discussion Page 10

  • Bob Tucker on Colossians 3
    Given Paul's tempestuous history and his eventual
    deliverance, causes one to the realize, the man
    experienced the Grace of God with an intimacy that
    only the Word of God can express. The reason he was so adamant about not mixing law with grace is
    he knew the law could reveal sin but not deliver
    from it. Paul's battle with "religious flesh" was
    evident in the seventh chapter of Romans. The eighth chapter gave him deliverance "there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are IN Christ Jesus." That is exactly why he wrote "set your affections on things above, not on things on the earth." Religion is trying to please God. Grace is God pleased with you through Christ.

  • Greg on Colossians 3
    Paul is warning, not about secular, but other religions. "After the rudiments of the world"; there are religious observations created by Christ for his people to follow, and there are religious observances created by worldly man. We are to stick to those practices created by Jesus. Lent, Christmas, Easter, Sunday sabbath, are all religious traditions and observations created by man. We are to change from the worldly man and repent of worldly ways, and turn to the religion Jesus and His followers observed. You will see what the Word means when it says "The world is the enemy of God" when you follow God's ways.
  • Ben Weaver on ColossiANs 3:4
    A study of the GR. will reveal that this verse is present tense and on-going rather than future, as the immediate text also directs. A more proper translation would then be, Whenever Christ, who is our life, is manifest / made to appear, then we also are gloriously lifted up in him. The previous chapter elaborates on manifesting Jesus rather than worldly religion.

The previous chapter elaborates the difference between Jesus and worldy religion.
  • Tosha on Colossians 3
    One of the best chapters in the Bible (in my opinion).
  • Mom on Colossians 3
    Because we belong to Jesus, we should act like Jesus. We can't separate our secular lives from our church lives. Whatever we do or say, we do so in the name of Jesus.
