Even Paul Couldn't Do It Alone

God has brought us through our first sermon series in a New Testament book. In Colossians, we met a preeminent Christ. We met Paul, who gently warned us of finding our qualifications in Christ and not "being a better person ism". We met the overwhelmingly awesome truth that in Christ, we become dead to sin and alive to Christ. As we finished up the book, however, we met 10 people in whom the rest of the book of Colossians takes on flesh and bones; 10 of Paul's companions, in whom new life is created and being lived out. 10 people whom even the apostle Paul simply couldn't do without.
