Pastor’s Power Lunch – Rooted in Christ
Do you remember when God amazed you? When he marvelously provided for you? Sadly, sometimes we forget God’s mercy. We lose sight of his grace. The early believers in the Colossian church had forgotten. Instead, they were impressed by spiritual claims from false teachers, and the church was starting to add some extras to salvation. The apostle Paul’s letters reminded them that Jesus is all we will ever need. Paul encourages. He challenges. He gives principles for living and interacting at work, in our families, and our church. Paul also knew that one of his friends had been betrayed and had every reason to seek revenge. So, Paul wrote to Philemon encouraging him to rise above his hurt and show mercy, forgiveness, grace, and love. Paul’s letters remind us of the difference Christ makes in every aspect of our lives. That is why it is so vitally important to be rooted in Christ. “Rooted in Christ: A Study of Colossians and Philemon” will take place in the Pastor’s Power Lunch.
