In Colossians 1:1–20, we learned that Paul is writing to believers in the city of Colossae. Paul tells of Christ’s supremacy, of His existence before creation, that through Him God created everything, and that Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. In verses 1:21–2:5, Paul tells of believers’ reconciliation to God through Christ and warns about false teachings.
“Yet now He has reconciled you to Himself through the death of Christ in His physical body. As a result, He has brought you into His own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before Him without a single fault.” (Colossians 1:22, NLT)
