Colossians Bible Study – Chapter 2 Verse 1-2

Colossians Bible Study The Truth about Religion – Perceive the Truth Regarding Christians

Our Common Battle

Colossians 2:1-2

1 For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; 2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; Colossians 2:1-2 KJV

Paul is about to confront the religious cult that was attacking the church at Colosse.  Paul is presenting his concerns about the religious cult, and soon the people would have to make a choice whom to follow.

Like the Christians, at Colosse, we are all in a common battle.  We all know Christians facing fierce temptations, serious problems, persecution, trouble, and even possibly questioning their faith.  Satan has them on the run – their battle must also be our battle.

Our Christian brothers and sisters must hear the truth of scripture as well as we must prove the lies of the Devil.  There was a battle raging at Colosse, and that battle still rages across the world today.  The only way to prove the lie is with the truth of God’s Word.  Our common enemy has to be stopped the world is depending on us.

Ephesians 6:14-17 (KJB) Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
