Colossians 1:19-23

For God in all his fullness
was pleased to live in Christ,
20 and through him God reconciled
everything to himself.
He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth
by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
21 This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. 22 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.

23 But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it. Don’t drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News. The Good News has been preached all over the world, and I, Paul, have been appointed as God’s servant to proclaim it.


Q: When you stand before God, how does verse 22 say you are to Him?

Q: What can you do today to help speak against the lies that you have flaws? How can you walk in full forgiveness and be free in who God has made you?

Q: Who needs to be free from their self-doubt and the lies that the enemy has spoken to them? Can you encourage someone today? Can you help stop them from the frustration of not being perfect by giving them new life?
