"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 1:1-14
We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you,4 since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints, because of the hope laid up for you in heaven.

We forget. We forget where we parked. We forget where we put our car keys. We forget friends birthdays and we forget appointments. Paul knew humanities forgetfulness and he knew that since the church is made up of humans, we as a church forget too. The opening statements in Paul's letter to the Colossians are about remembering that we have been transferred out of the kingdom of darkness into Christ's marvelous light. He reminds us that we are the city shining on a hill. He reminds us that we are most joyful when we are thankful. He reminds us that we are most secure when we in prayer with our Father. He reminds us also of what Christ has done for us and that alone should spark our imaginations daily for Gospel living and Gospel hope. Join us as we begin a new series in Colossians and grow in our knowledge and service to King Jesus.
