"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Colossians 3:18-25
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.

We live in the age of Lowe's. Or, maybe you're a Home Depot kind of family. We watch shows about home improvements and we love a good Pinterest board on quick DIY projects that could add value to our home. Yet, while we are quick to add monetary value, we are a bit more unsure on how to add spiritual value to our home, our marriage, and to our children's lives. This Sunday is 5th Sunday and we want to talk about the family. After talking extensively about the baptized and resurrected life of the Christian, Paul now moves toward interpersonal relationships and how to live the crucified and resurrected life in the here and now. While the surrounding context is hotly debated about wives submitting and slaves obeying, there is no arguing that the Christian home should be safe and hospitable for everyone to grow and to flourish in Christ. As we continue in our series through Colossians, we look forward to being together in worship and hope. Join us as we talk about our homes and how we can add spiritual value to our homes and families.
