When people hear the word Christian what do you think comes to mind? Is it positive or negative? Do they think of the Crusades or maybe Mother Teresa? Or maybe a certain denomination or political party? Or maybe they think of the good or bad example of the Christians that they have known. Our world today is ignorant of what Christ was really like and that makes it even more difficult to point them towards Him. In these verses Paul is telling the Colossians to do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, but first he must guide us through some verses that explain how it is even possible.
