We live in a day of relativism, where nothing is absolute. Life is subjective and left to each individual’s perception of it. We hear that our hope for life can be whatever we’d like it to be, that all roads will eventually lead to heaven. Colossians shows us that true hope is found in Christ alone.
We live in a day of discovery. Technological and scientific advancements are light years ahead of those from just 50 years ago. Anything you want to do or know is just a mouse click away. Colossians shows us that all that satisfies our longings is Christ.
We live in a day of brokenness: broken marriages, broken families, and broken relationships. People today are starving for meaning and Colossians gives us meaning.
We live in a day of practicality. People aren’t really interested in truth but simply what works for them. They look at Christ practically. Does he really give peace, joy, and hope? Will he give me purpose in this life? Colossians answers those questions with a resounding yes!
In our relativistic, advanced, broken, and tangible day, Colossians shows us that Christ is all.
In Christ, Nathan
