Wednesday Bible Study

On Wednesdays, we meet in the church’s fellowship hall at 12:30 p.m. and 6:30p.m. At 6:30p.m., classes are available for all ages. The adults meet in the sanctuary and our youth meet downstairs. Make it a family affair! The series below begins Wednesday, September 13 at 12 Noon and at 6:30 p.m.
 

 

The book of Colossians helps us to live according to God’s Word.  The book teaches principles for everyday Christian living in the midst of a non-Christian culture.  In this world, this means you will often be in the minority and not the majority.  We will make this a nine lesson series.  Our topics will include:
 

Lesson One: How to Please God (Click to Download Lesson)
In order to please God, we need to love him enough to make a difference in the way we act, think, and live.
Colossians 1:1–14

Colossians 1:15–2:1

 

Lesson Three:  A Stable Walk with God
We are saved by faith, and we live by faith.
Colossians 2:2–7

If your Christian life resembles a roller-coaster ride, Colossians 2:2–7 can show you how to establish stability in your daily walk with Jesus. Paul uses four pivotal phrases that are crucial to living in Christ.

Lesson Four: Think Like a Christian
Everything we need we have in Christ.
Colossians 2:8–15

In contrast to what “worldly philosophies” teach, Paul boldly states that everything we need we have in Christ. There are three things in particular that we will look at in this study.
 

Lesson Five: Spiritual Self-Defense
Connect to Christ and allow him to become the focus of your existence.
Colossians 2:16–23

Paul gives us a course in spiritual self-defense; he shows us how to protect ourselves from thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and attitudes that put us at risk spiritually. This study covers three primary pitfalls to avoid.
 
Lesson Six: Living with a Focus
To win the inner civil war, you have to set your heart and mind on Christ.
Galatians 5:22–23
If you’re not careful, there are three obstacles that will disrupt your life, drive a wedge between your heart and your head, and prevent you from living a committed, focused Christian life.

 

Lesson Seven: When People Rub You the Wrong Way
God wants us to live together in unity.
Colossians 3:12–17

The ability to get along with others requires a great deal of effort. Learn to live in harmony with one another.

 

Lesson Eight: What You Do Comes Back to You
If you do right or wrong, you will be paid in kind.
Colossians 3:18–4:1

The Bible teaches that what you do in this life comes back to you in this life—and the one to come. If you do right, you will be paid for doing right; if you do wrong, you will be paid for doing wrong.

 

Lesson Nine: Become a Prayer Warrior

We need to develop a solid foundation of prayer.
Colossians 4:2–6

Paul challenged the Colossian Christians to do three things regarding prayer: Make prayer a priority, look for things to pray about, and pray with a good attitude.
