    Last week we finished reading through the book of Hebrews. Toward the end, in the last couple of verses of Hebrews 12, a serious note is struck: let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire (12:28b-29).

    In addition to preaching through Colossians, we also read through it last week in our read through the Bible reading plan.

    Wisdom. Who doesn’t want it? Who doesn’t need it? Thankfully, wisdom is offered and wisdom is provided. Most foundationally our wisdom is Christ himself: “And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God…” (1 Cor. 1:30). In Christ we learn the path of true life. In Christ our …
