TO MANY PROFESSING CHRISTIANS LEAVE CHRIST AND OUR CHURCHES FOR WHAT? FOR ANYTHING AT ALL THAT THIS WORLD HAS TO OFFER? IS LIKE BEING DUPED BY A DODGY CAR SALESMAN INTO TRADING IN YOUR TOP OF THE RANGE ROLLS ROYCE FOR A CLAPPED OUT ROBIN RELIANT, YOU WERE PROMISED SO MUCH FROM THE SALESMAN – BUT IN REALITY YOU RECEIVE SO LITTLE, IN FACT A HEAP OF RUBBISH.

PAUL EMPHASIS THE ALL SUFFICIENCY OF BEING ‘IN CHRIST’ IN THIS CHAPTER ALONE HE SAYS,

A) 2:3 IN WHOM ARE HIDDEN ALL THE TREASURES OF WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE. (DON’T BE DELUDED, BY PLAUSABLE ARGUMENTS )

B) 2:6 YOU HAVE RECIEVED THE LORD JESUS SO WALK IN HIM , 2:7 ROOTED AND BUILT UP IN HIM . (DON’T FOLLOW SHALLOW PHILOSOPHIES, EMPTY DECEIT (2:8) AND HUMAN TRADITIONS. OR THE SPIRITS OF THIS WORLD)

C) 2:9 IN HIM ALL THE FULLNESS OF THE DEITY DWELLS BODILY

D) 2:10. YOU HAVE BEEN FILLED IN HIM.

E) 2:11. YOU WERE CIRCUMCISED IN HIM.

F) 2:12 IN HIM WE WERE BURIED AND RAISED UP.

G) 2:13. IN HIM MADE ALIVE TOGETHER WITH HIM.

H) 2:15. IN HIM TRIUMPHING OVER ALL THE RULERS AND AUTHORITIES IN HIM.

CHRIST IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN BRING US INTO TRUE LIBERTY OF LIFE - OF CONSCIENCE AND CONDUCT
