Two little words have changed everything!
Being a Christian is not all that easy. Think about it. How do we change? How do we live up to all the stuff the Bible says we should do? How can people like us pull off a holy and righteous life? Well, the news gets worse before it gets better.
The Christian life is not just difficult. It's impossible! In fact, it's so impossible that only one guy in the history of world has ever been able to actually pull it off. As it turns out, He was so good at living the Christian life they named it after him. Yep. His name was Jesus Christ.
As you will discover in these messages from the book of Colossians, God is not asking us to "do the Christian life" in our own strength. He knows we don't have the strength or power to make it happen.
But the message doesn't stop there. Two little words have changed everything. And those words? "IN YOU!" The hope of our lives is not in trying to to live the Christian life, but rather embracing the reality of Christ living His life in and through each of us. It's Christ in you, the hope of glory.
So take the journey. Get a glimpse of who you are in Him and who He is in you. Surrender to His life. Tap into his power. Walk in His truth.

Louie Giglio was born 30 June 1958, and grew up in a Christian home in Atlanta, Georgia. He was an average college freshman at Georgia State University in 1977, that is, until one night, at 2 a.m., when he decided to devote his life to following Christ, not the college party life. He was inspired to be one of the first people to design a modern style of worship that is geared specifically toward young adults, with casual attire, expressive worship, and low-key, visually driven sermons.
Louie went on to earn a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife Shelley started Choice Ministries, a Bible study at Baylor University that would become hugely popular among the student body. In 1995, when he moved back home to Atlanta, Georgia, due to his father's failing health, Louie founded a national gathering of Christian college students called the Passion Movement. From the first Passion Conference in Austin, Texas, in 1997, nearly a million university students have attended Passion-linked prayer, worship, and teaching events across the US, reaching a peak in the 17-city Passion Tour of 2008.
As part of the Passion Movement, Louie began a recording company, Sixsteps Records, which has signed and produced various Christian worship artists, such as David Crowder Band, Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, and Charlie Hall. He also started a Bible study movement, 7:22, aimed at single adults in the Atlanta area, which would attract thousands.
Louie has authored numerous popular books, including The Air I Breathe, I Am Not but I Know I Am, Indescribable, Passion, Wired: For a Life of Worship, Lost in Wonder, and The Comeback.
In 2008, Louie announced the planting of Passion City Church (PCC) in Atlanta, and was joined in the new venture by popular Christian recording artists Chris Tomlin and Matt Redman. Prior to this, Louie had attended North Point Community Church for 13 years, Louie and his wife Shelley make their home just outside of Atlanta.
