If you turn the next page in your Bible from Philippians, you will arrive at Colossians. We are going to spend the next two weeks in the books of Colossians and Philemon. You will notice the themes from our church’s mission statement occur a lot in these two letters: Know Jesus intimately. Be transformed by the Spirit. Do mission with God… Together.
You will notice a lot of similar themes, prayers, and encouragement. Let these steep inside you and become a genuine part of your life and character.
The notes in my Bible say that these letters were probably written at the same time and carried together to the church at Colossae.

Read Colossians 1:1-2
- Spend some time praying for His grace and peace to be not only felt by you personally, but that others would feel it extended to them from you.
