STRENGTHENING THE FLOCK Colossians 2:16-23 Print this Bible Study
** We have become very familiar with the New Testament practice of teaching by way of reminder. Last week we saw the apostle Paul remind the Colossians in six different areas concerning their relationship with Jesus Christ. Do you recall that list?
** Today we will see Paul take the Colossians to the next logical step in his letter. Having reminded them of such profound truths, he is now going to be "Strengthening the Flock" against spiritual heresy by referencing those same truths. The Christian life is totally dependent upon the application of God's truth and not just the hearing of it. We can be strengthened in our own walk if we will apply what we learn from the Word of God, and we too can serve the Lord by "Strengthening the Flock" through a proper use of His Word. Let's look at our passage together.
