False teachers in Colossae were bored with the gospel and wanted to move into deeper things.

I’m thinking that Paul disagreed…

Paul was called as an apostle by Jesus (Colossians 1:1)

The good news of Jesus is bearing fruit throughout the world (Colossians 1:6)

The kingdom belongs to Jesus (Colossians 1:13)

Jesus is the image of God (Colossians 1:15). Another way of saying that Jesus is God.

All things were created by Jesus (Colossians 1:16)

Jesus  is the head of the church (Colossians 1:18)

All the fullness of God indwells Jesus (Colossians 1:19)

Jesus reconciled sinful man through his death (Colossians 1:22)

We grow spiritually as we remain steadfast in Jesus (Colossians 1:23)

The church is the body of Jesus Christ (1:24). Want to reform the church? Don’t fixate on what other churches are doing. Fix your eyes on Christ.

Maturity means becoming more like Jesus (Colossians 1:28)

We operate on a daily basis in the power of Jesus (Colossians 1:29)

All wisdom and knowledge are found in Jesus (Colossians 2:3)

Every day of our life we are to walk in Jesus (Colossians 2:6)

We have been filled in Jesus (Colossians 2:10)

We have been circumcised in Jesus (Colossians 2:11)

We have been buried in Jesus (Colossians 2:12)

We were raised in Jesus (Colossians 2:12)

Our debt was cancelled by Jesus (Colossians 2:14)

Jesus broke the power of sin and death on the cross (Colossians 2:14)

We need to daily set our minds on Jesus (Colossians 3:1-2)

Our life is hidden in Jesus (Colossians 3:3)

Peace comes to us only through Jesus (Colossians 3:15)

We need to let the Word of Christ dwell in us (Colossians 3:16)

Every single thing we do in life should be done in the name of Jesus (Colossians 3:17)

All of our work should be done as unto Jesus (Colossians 3:23)

The way we treat employees needs to be done in the light of the fact that Jesus is our Master in heaven (Colossians 4:1)
