Wet Monday …

The outlook for a wet Monday in Wales

On a wet Monday in Wales it’s easy to lose any sense of satisfaction and go off trying to find it in some very non-constructive places!

And when dissatisfaction starts to take root, it’s easy to go looking for ‘extra’ … as if we hadn’t already been offered enough.

The Christians at Colossae were living through seven shades of recession (the road through this previously busy little trading town had been shifted north to run through Laodicea so the trade went away, the jobs went away, the young people went away … and the church languished in the potential for disillusionment).

And that’s were the heretics came in … there’s no evidence they adopted the slogan ‘Heresy – we give you extra!’ But they might have done.

And that’s the problem Paul addresses in Colossians. Because Jesus has got all God in Him, and the Colossians have got Jesus if they live out their lives in union with Him.

And Paul teaches them exactly how to be sure to get their all in Him …
