Colossians 1:1-8 Truly Understanding the Grace of God (Colossians 1:1-8)Simon Twist, February 7, 2021
Part of the Firm Foundations - Colossians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
What do you tell a new Christian about continuing in the faith? What are the things that every Christian ought to know? Firm Foundations will take us through the book of Colossians to see exactly what is important. We begin by making sure we get the priority right and understand what is the firm foundation that we build upon.

Colossians 1:1–8 (Listen)
1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,
2 To the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father.
3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints, 5 because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel, 6 which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and increasing—as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth, 7 just as you learned it from Epaphras our beloved fellow servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf 8 and has made known to us your love in the Spirit.
