Identity Theft 9 - Colossians 2:1-7 Riches in Christ (Colossians 2:1-7)Tye Riter, June 3, 2012
Pastor Tye looks at how the assurance of who Christ is and who we are in Him can radically change our perspective. He talks about the wisdom that is hidden in Christ and how Satan tries to twist and pervert our perspective of the past to make God look bad.
2:1 For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, 2 that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, which is Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. 5 For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ.
6 Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, 7 rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. (ESV)
