Paul lived a difficult life in a difficult world. Those first-century circumstances could easily have weakened his ministry. What kept his faith fresh and vital? His focus on Christ and his confidence that Jesus, in his full diety, gives us "fullness of life." As we read Paul's letter to the Colossians, we realize that aspects of the heresy that threatened the early church are active in our own world. Paul provides a defense-warning, teaching, and encouraging us to focus on Christ.
