Turn to the light and truth found in Paul’s letter to the Colossians. Paul was in prison when he wrote this. He had never been to Colossae, a city in what is now Turkey. However, the person who started the church, Epaphras, was concerned and went to Paul for help. Apparently, the young church was being tempted by cultural pressures to turn away from Jesus. Gee, that’s sounds familiar! Don’t Christians today face temptations from cultural pressures? Maybe we can learn something from this letter.

Are You struggling with the temptations of today’s culture?
Jesus can save you from that! All you have to do is…
Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.
- Believe — have Faith — that Jesus is the Christ and He died taking your sins away forever and that He rose from the dead 3 days later.
- Repent of your sins — stop sinning! Do a complete 180-degree turn in your life and surrender your life to Him. When you ask Jesus to forgive you He will. ALL your sins will be wiped clean — past, present, and future! And All means ALL!
- Be Baptized by water baptism — show the world and yourself that you have died to your old life and are born again in Christ.
- Receive the gift of Holy Spirit in your heart.
