Paul wrote to the Colossian believers to assure them of their identity in Christ and to urge them on to maturity, lest they be drawn away from the truth. Having once been alienated from God, he explained, they were now reconciled by Christ. Jesus’ death covered every individual sin, and one day He would present His people holy and blameless to His Father. As Alistair Begg makes plain, while everyone’s heart is hostile to God, in Christ we have been radically transformed from what we once were.
