So Great A Savior (Colossians 1-2)
The church in Colossae was not founded by Paul, but rather by his colleague in ministry, Epaphras. Nevertheless, Paul retained a pastoral interest in the church. When he heard that false teachers were pressuring the congregation, he wrote his letter to refute their errors. What the false teaching may have been is not clear, but apparently it detracted from the supremacy of Christ. Paul devoted his letter to reminding them what a great Savior they served. Though the 21st century church faces different pressures, Paul's reminder is still true. We serve a great Savior, one who deserves to be preeminent in our lives.
