Paul in this letter is combating heresy in the church and people who have distorted the image of Jesus. Paul loves this church dearly and cares for their spiritual maturity and well-being. Paul’s response doesn’t attack or spend time critiquing the wrong view, rather Paul draws people to worship the risen Savior by showing Jesus in His supremacy, power, and beauty.

Colossians 1:15-20 will present to us the most essential truth of the Christian faith. Christianity is centered on Christ being God and God making peace by His own blood for the sins of man.
