Without a solid foundation, no building will stand. The same is true of the Christian life. All of the progress we make in our walk with God must rest on what is foundational: the person and work of Jesus Christ. Through our union with Christ we are made alive to God, freed from slavery to sin and worldliness, and empowered to live according to the pattern God has established for us.
As Alistair Begg begins a study in Paul’s letter to the Colossians, he explores the apostle’s faithful commitment to this solid foundation. Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who created and sustains all things and saved us by shedding His blood on the cross. Paul was a faithful preacher of this truth in the face of opposition and suffering, and the church and its ministers today must continue to proclaim God’s Word as Paul did.
