REMINDING THE FLOCK Colossians 2:11-15 Download this Bible Study
** As last week's study came to a close, we observed three ways in which the apostle Paul had shown himself to be "Protecting the Flock". Do you recall those three ways?
** As Paul continues in our passage for today, he will employ a method which is used throughout the New Testament epistles - that is the method of reminding. When the apostle Peter wrote his second letter he said, "And I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder" (2Peter 1:13). Today we are privileged to learn from Paul as we see him "Reminding the Flock" of how God has blessed them with their new life in Christ. Let's read the passage together.

Reminding the Flock
V.11 ** Last week we learned that all the fulness of Deity dwelt
in the body of Jesus Christ, that we have been made complete in Him and
that He is head over all. Of what additional reality does Paul now remind
his readers concerning their position "in" Christ?
