This letter to the Colossians reminds Christians that they are “God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved” (3:12). It proclaims the deity of Jesus using some of the loftiest language in all the New Testament to help the church know God in his greatness and glory. Jesus makes believers alive to God and sets them on the path to right living. This proper view of Christ serves as the antidote for heresy and a building block for Christian life and doctrine both then and now.
