No other book in the Bible focuses more on Jesus, who he was, what he did, and why it is so important than the book of Colossians. In Colossians chapter 2, we are going to see exactly why Jesus was nailed to the cross that day, because it was more than just the body of a man and everything that needed to be nailed along with Him. In fact, what was nailed that day took care of my past, my present, and my future, and the same is true for you. So let’s look specifically at what was nailed to the cross with Jesus so that we can understand all that had to die so that we could have a relationship with God and be reconciled to Him.
The book of Colossians says that God is the creator and controller of the universe - a guardian of the galaxy, if you will. And as guardian of the galaxy, He doesn’t need any help. That is the theme of this book of the Bible that we are going to be studying over the next several weeks. The whole book can be summed up in one half of one verse in Colossians 3:11, “...Christ is all, and is in all.” Just as this guardian of the galaxy has control of this universe, so He wants to be in control of your life and mine. He doesn’t just give us life so that we can live, but He tells us how He wants us to live.
