Colossians: A Good Identity Crisis

Continuing in Colossians, the Bible addresses the question "How should we live" by first answering "Who are we?"  The identity of who we are in Christ is to have a powerful affect on how we subsequently live.

Sermon discussion questions:

  • What is the Christian's identity in the book of Colossians?

  • What impact should "elect of God, holy and beloved" have on how we view ourselves?

  • On how we view our striving for holiness? 

  • What are we called to "put on"? 

  • Are we living out our identity?
