Colossians 2

Paul wrote so many good lines in Colossians 2. I’m struggling with which ones to call attention to and dive into. I can’t possibly cover it all. And I’m sure Paul felt the same way when writing these letters. He had written roughly 2,000 words, and he was trying to explain the mystery of theContinue reading “Colossians 2”

1 John (part 8)
