Profile

Many of us today have online social networks where we create and work to maintain our profile. Our goal is to present an image of ourselves that we want other people to see.

In Colossians, Paul presents a profile that has the power to change our lives completely. Paul presents Jesus, the uncreated Creator of all things, the image of the invisible God, the firstborn from the dead. The better we understand Jesus’ profile, the better we’ll understand who we really are in Christ.

In this series, as we work through Paul’s letter to the Colossians, we’re going to see how Jesus truly is our all in all and explore how this truth impacts our lives.

“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth, for you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory.” Colossians 3:2-4
