No one knows exactly what the deceit was that the Colossians were facing. We do, however, know it involved attempts to suggest Jesus was less than completely God and encouraged the idea there was more to life than Jesus. This is a real danger even within the church today – the idea that following Jesus is okay, but that there is more fulfillment to be found in the ways of the world. This week we want to consider the warning Paul spoke to the Colossians and see it as relevant today. We need to be on our guard against the things of the world that are looking to move us away from Christ.
