- In the Colossian church (as in all the emerging young churches) there was a need to understand ‘the true bounds of Christian freedom’. They were under pressure (from the ‘spoilers’) to continue to conform to the rules of disappearing Judaism and the dictates of human philosophy (Colossians 2:8)
- This week in Bible Study we will investigate ‘the true bounds of Christian freedom’.
- The scriptural basis for the lesson will be Colossians 2:16-3:4.
Lesson Outline: We will be studying the doctrine of the finished work of Christ with a focus on the following areas:
- Proper Christian freedom
- The Lord’s Day
- The power of error
- The possibility of pride
- Positive spiritual growth
- Pursuing sanctified lives
- New ambition
- New Life
- New hope
