Choosing Gratitude Day 2

Day 2

Colossians 1:3122:73:15–174:2

 The central theme of Colossians is Christ. He is exalted and worshiped for 

His divine nature, being the Creator and Sustainer of all things, His 

preeminence over all creation and over all cosmic rulers and powers, His 

redemptive, reconciling work on the cross, defeating the powers of darkness, 

being the Head of the church which is His body, being the fulfillment and 

substance of Old Testament types and figures, being the believer’s life and 

our hope of glory, and so much more!

As those who have “died” with Christ, “been buried with him in baptism,” and 

“raised with him through faith,” our joy and hope do not emanate from any 

earthly source or from our religious practices, but from Him. Within the four 

chapters of this short epistle, Paul calls us to be: sexually pure, 

compassionate, kind, humble, meek, patient, forgiving, loving, peaceful, 

obedient, just, wise, gracious, and thankful!

Read through one or more of the following passages from Colossians, 

meditating on them, praying them back to God, and using them as a basis for 

giving thanks to Him!

Which verse "hit home" for you?

For His Glory.
