1. A friend of yours lets you know that the word “redemption” is not understood at all … how would you describe our redemption in Christ to your friend over coffee? See Colossians 1:13-14.
2. Verses 15-22 show various ways that Jesus Christ is over all things, and that our salvation is totally dependent on what He has accomplished. Which of the descriptions of Jesus’ being over all things speaks the most intensely to you? Why?
3. Verse 23 can be troubling to those who love people who once claimed to know Christ personally but no longer live a life committed to Him. What are possible ways to address this issue of once professing Christians falling away? Use Scripture.
