Captured by Christ
A Study of Colossians
Couples In Christ, Sunrise Community Church, Summer / Fall 2014

Introduction

Why study Colossians?  To be honest I’ve spent the last several months preparing to teach from another book.  But there is something compelling, something essential, something foundational and non-negotiable about this letter from Paul.  He was completely sold out to God and completely captured by Jesus Christ.  His story and his teaching have penetrated my life for the last 25 years since my first serious journey through these pages.  I want to share it.
