One Man’s Ministry

Passage: Colossians 1:21-2:3

If you received a letter from a man you had never met, a man who was a prisoner, accused of being a troublemaker, how would you respond? That was the situation facing the believers in Colossae after they received the apostle Paul's letter. I'm sure Paul had anticipated what was happening there. False teachers had been discrediting Paul and placing doubt in people's minds concerning his ministry. Today we will look at how Paul used this letter to explain his ministry and to encourage the church there.
