Colossians 2:1-5: Protection from Deception

At the end of Colossians chapter one we felt the heartbeat of Paul to see disciples made. Now as chapter two opens we see the great agony he has that the Colossian church be healthy and strong. What undermines that health? Division that comes when enticing words draw people away from their firm understanding of the supremacy of Christ. If you lose full confidence that Christ is enough, you open yourself up to error. When you open yourself up to error, you open the door in the church for unity to be wrecked. We need the firm and loving protection Paul provides in our text today for our steadfastness and the church’s unity.

In this text we see:

Two crucial questions to consider in the protection of God’s people …

1. What is the greatest concern in the health of a church? [v1-3]

2. What is the greatest danger in the health of a church? [v4-5]
